Meeting the Interns: Thomas Prevot

WRITTEN BY // Claudia Hauter CATEGORIES // Team | Inverdoorn-blog

“TOURNE-TOI VERS LE SOLEIL, L'OMBRE SERA DERRIÈRE TOI”

Meeting the Interns: Thomas Prevot

Travelling from one famous wine region to another, namely Bordeaux to Cape Town, Thomas Prevot has come to South Africa to "discover a new culture and a new kind of work." Studying hospitality management and catering, his work at Inverdoorn forms part of the practical work of his course. Staying at a game reserve in South Africa "is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" and, of course, as he points out "we don't have lodges with animals...

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

Meeting the Volunteers: Mélissa Boursier

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...

“À COEUR VAILLANT RIEN D'IMPOSSIBLE”

Meeting the Volunteers: Marion Sabatié

With her boundless energy and a permanent twinkle in her eye, Marion Sabatié reminds me of a mischievous pixie. I was with her when she first arrived at Inverdoorn and her nervous, wide-eyed wonder has been replaced by a relaxed ease in her new surroundings. Hailing from France, this is her first time in South Africa. She is studying biology at the University of Toulouse and wants to be a teacher for middle and high school students....
