When I started UWC Blogs in 2013, my intention was to give UWC applicants a glimpse into life at UWC. At the time I was waiting impatiently to start my own UWC experience at UWC Waterford Kamhlaba. I had soaked up every bit of UWC promotional material, but I still couldn’t quite imagine what UWC would be like. So I read through every blog about UWC I could find and eventually created UWC Blogs to share the blogs with other UWC hopefuls.

Now UWC Blogs has grown to include over 400 blogs. That’s a lot of content!
