Her interest in art and design is palpable. “I did a similar graphic design internship in Uganda last year which I loved so I decided I wanted to do something like that again but in a different place and Greenpop sounded exactly what I was looking for. I’d never visited South Africa before so thought it was a perfect travel opportunity too!”
When asked how Sam felt about Greenpop both personally and professionally, she has this to say: “By getting the opportunity to attend the Zambia Festival of Action, going on plant days, monitoring days and from spending time at the nursery you get the chance to really see all of the aspects of Greenpop and what they do. You get to actually learn about the organisation as well as just learning new skills in your particular internship. I’ve also learned to be more confident with the work that I’m doing and how to take criticism constructively. Work is never perfect to start with and it’s always good to get other peoples opinions to help you improve and to make sure that the client is always getting what they are happy with.”
