Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I’m from the United States. I recently graduated from law school, and am spending a few months volunteering and traveling before returning to work at an American law firm. I fell in love with South Africa during my first trip to the country in 2009, and started plotting my return the moment the plane landed back in the States! I worked with incarcerated and at-risk youth during college and law school, and have always been passionate about human rights issues. Needless to say, volunteering at Scalabrini is a great fit for me. I really enjoy meeting so many new people every day, and feel so privileged to hear their stories and learn about their lives. Thank you to everyone – volunteers, staff and clients – who has made my time at Scalabrini so wonderful!
