We’re very excited to introduce and welcome our team of official bloggers and vloggers for summer 2021!
This summer, we have a mix of in-country and remote bloggers and vloggers sharing their unique experiences from their host countries and from home. Each of them will receive a grant while they are studying with CAPA to help them generate their stories here on CAPA World. From pre-departure thoughts through their reflections upon the end of the summer term, we will watch the stories of these students unfold as they learn about their host countries, explore and discover their real global city locations beyond stereotypes and expectations, interact with locals, focus on their academics, and complete internships.
So, who are they and where are they going?
