Magister organized a internship for me, working in a Sea Point school in Cape Town. I taught sex education and AIDS awareness in the high school and held some one-on-one English literacy sessions It was undoubtedly the most challenging and satisfying work I’ve done in my life. The things the kids came out with were hilarious, or shocking, or sometimes very touching. On the whole it made me see Cape Town from a very different perspective. I became good friends with my co-workers at the school. The guys I lived with in Perspectives were amazing. Magister equips you with a fantastic work and social life so you’re confident to go out and embrace South Africa!
