“My life revolves around school, part-time jobs, applications, and occasionally being social and sleeping. But when I was in Cape Town, everything was different. In Cape Town, everything was perfect. And then, that had to end.”
“Cape Town boasts one of the most impressive, diverse, and comprehensive collections of restaurants and other food-related experiences on the planet. In my five months in the Mother City, I barely scratched the surface of what it has to offer.”
Home is Cape Town. Home is with my family. Home is with my friends. Home is feeling safe. Home is knowing that I belong. And although the reasons for the feeling may change depending on where I am, I know that I can always feel at home.
One of the biggest worries I had leaving for this exchange was regarding the type of people I’d meet here. Besides one other UBC student whom I had only met once prior to leaving, I knew not a single soul living in Cape Town.
