This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I went all over Australia including Sydney, Melbourne, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Gold Coast. Everywhere I went just continued to blow me away. I truly loved diving in to the Aussie culture and I’m sure all my friends and family back home will look at me funny when I start saying “mate”, “cheers”, and “brekkie” all the time. My internship was for a nonprofit yoga foundation that offers free yoga to people effected by mental illness, domestic abuse, homelessness, etc.. I had two of the nicest bosses in the world and learned so much. It even inspired me to want to teach yoga to people struggling with mental health during my gap year. From the city to the people here, there’s nothing not to love. I came here knowing no one and I’ve left with friends that will last a lifetime.
