I am Tara and I live in Blouberg together with my boyfriend and dog! In 2012 I did an internship through 4Exchange and not only fell in love with my boyfriend but also with South Africa. After completing my study Leisure Management in Amsterdam and a amazing worldtrip, we decided to go after our dream and move to Cape Town. At the beginning of 2018 I moved here permanently and I have not regretted it for a second!
What can you expect from me?
I work in the position of Leisuremanager. I am responsible for the (online) marketing of 4Exchange and the organization of activities and weekend trips. For example, we start each semester with a Welcome Party where students have the opportunity to get to know each other better. In addition, we offer every month a great weekend trip to for example Hermanus, Kruger Park and a Survival Experience!
4Exchange offered me a great time in 2012 and I gladly do my part to make this an unforgettable time for other students! With its years of experience, 4Exchange has a large database with the best internships, multiple accommodation options in ideal locations and great trips where everything is arranged for you! We can be reached by telephone 24/7 and our office is located in the center of Cape Town. We are always open to answer all your questions, comments or if you just want to chat!
Best thing about your work at 4Exchange?
The variety, creativity and students. No day is the same and during the trips I have the opportunity to get to know the students well, which is always very nice.
Must do for students in Cape Town:
Register for at least three of our weekend getaways to be able to see the most of South Africa together with your fellow students! Use your other weekends to enjoy the sun on the beautiful beaches, discover nature during one of the many hikes Cape Town has to offer and relax during a winetasting and cheese platter on one of the fantastic winefarms!
