Unforgettable experience with great team

19 days ago

After a bit longer than a month there, Big Blue turned into my home in Cape Town! The team is really great, and I felt really welcome. I worked 5 hours a day at the bar (usually at night), but the environment is so nice and chilled that it barely felt like working. Plus, I had the whole day to explore the beautiful city of Cape Town. I would surely come back and recommend volunteering in Big Blue!!!

Her attention to detail, focus and always looking to add value is a key part of her personality. Whichever field this amazing young lady ventures into will definately be a success. Obrigado
