"I wish I could express the thoughts and feelings my internship in India has inspired but, after two weeks back on Vancouver Island, I still haven’t found words that can adequately describe my summer abroad. For this reason, I’ll keep my advice simple: if you are contemplating an internship through CAPI, do it."

- UVic Law student Courtenay Jacklin spent four months in India on a CAPI internship working at The Other Media, an organization focused on environmental and social justice issues in Southeast India.
