Review

My internship through ELI was not only academically rewarding, it was also a great adventure. I worked with a well known professor, helping with her research, digitizing some of her data and writing parts of her paper. Because the work went so well, I will be listed as a co-author when it's submitted for publication. The research exposed me to an exciting area of public health I hadn't considered before. I will use some of the materials I came across in South Africa as part of my own work in the US. During my internship I lived in a group home with other interns and volunteers from around the world. It was comforting and fun to live with others doing similar things in Cape Town. We'd hang out on weekends together, and travel. I also found the time to go to Victoria Falls and on a safari. It was definitely the trip of a lifetime (so far!) I recommend ELI to anyone thinking of interning in public health. Their connections in South Africa are amazing!
