“EXISTER C’EST OSER SE JETER DANS LE MONDE.” – SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR

Meeting the Volunteers: Mélissa Boursier

The conservation of cheetahs at Inverdoorn is giving Mélissa Boursier plenty of material for her doctoral thesis in veterinary sciences. She is in the fourth year of her studies at Nantes, ONIRIS in France which she says "is the best year so far, because now I know I will be a vet." This is a dream she has held dear for a long time, "I wanted to be a vet since a young age. I am happy to be able to do the job I've always wanted to...

“DO YOUR LITTLE BIT OF GOOD WHERE YOU ARE. IT IS THOSE LITTLE BITS OF GOOD PUT TOGETHER THAT OVERWHELM THE WORLD.” – DESMOND TUTU

Meeting the Volunteers: Kirsty Woodhead

Before meeting Kirsty Woodhead, I knew that she had South African roots and was curious to hear her accent. Having moved to Canada at a young age, she has lost her accent and laments this loss. Kirsty regularly visits the country of her birth and displays such pride at her heritage, that I feel a rush of pride myself whenever she talks about the Rainbow Nation. She would definitely consider returning for good, "I would come back to...

Diary of a Lost French Student

Diary of a Lost French Student

After the sound of my alarm clock, it is very difficult to get up – but thinking of all the things I will do today, I find the courage to leave my bed. I meet some of my fellow students in the kitchen to have breakfast together. After brushing my teeth, we are finally ready to get down to business. First, we have to go to the office for the morning meeting. We are told what to do for today, but very often the tasks evolve over the...
