WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work for a South Africa based organisation from home. I can experience the international work vibe without travelling. My internship keeps me busy and focused which is so important because I don't have to be one of those who are bored at home. I am using my time effectively, I am productive, learn a lot of new skills. Thanks to Roots Interns, I often forget that there is a world crisis out there. I can only recommend a remote internship!
