It’s a story before I met the person who attracted me.
(He is not so attractive now. lol)
When I entered my university, I intended to do these 3things.
1.study hard,2.enjoy life,3.Doing something in overseas countries.
So I belonged to a tennis club to achieve the 2nd one, and I took note very hard in all classes during April. But about the 3rd one, I couldn’t find suitable way to do it.My friends gave me some advices like “just take a trip to abroad in summer vacation.However, it was a little bit different from my image of “doing something”.
I needed something more exciting and meaningful and overseas volunteer was the one thing which came to my mind.
After I started to find some international volunteer organizations, AIESEC appeared to me for the first time.
I felt it is also a little bit different from a trip, because the leaflet said that we will have to some activities in Japan.However, I attended the information session just because my friend asked me to join it together.
The only thing I remember was that “the president was soooo attractive!! I want be like him!!”
So I decided to join AIESEC right then and there even though the friend decided not to join AIESEC.
Actually, I had lots of experiences in AIESEC, but let me share
2 things which really influenced me, International Internship in Malaysia and Activities as VP of KOLC.
International Internship was defenitely my life changing experience.
During the first summer vacation, I was in Malaysia for 6weeks for an internship in a NGO. It was the first time for me to go abroad, so it meant everything was first time for me in that country and now, just now, I can say that this experience has changed me dramatically.
I realized the potential of AIESEC and my potential at that time.
So, I started to have lots of experiences instead of studying and enjoying in my university life for 3 years.
As the VP of KOLC, I learned that we can make impact on society if we do what only we can do.
This year, I challenged to make use of our international network by some new method by combining the ideas which I got through my 3 of international experiencies.
And the most suprising thing was that the big unexpected achievement was created by the new International project. It means I made a big impact on society by making use of our international network.
Now, I believe that AIESEC can change the society.
My 1st year of AIESEC, the purpose to be in AIESEC was just improve myself.
Of course, it’s not bad. AIESEC is the organization which develops young talent.
But by facing big achievement which I made, I became to believe AIESEC has the possiblity
to change the society.
We must find best way to make use of our bigggest connection in the world to make biggest impact on society.
So, let’s move on to the main topic, “why I am in AIESEC”
As I wrote in the last topic, We must find best way to make use of our biggest connection in the world to make biggest impact on society.
And I believe that I am the one who can do it, because I actually craeted biggest achievement in KOLC and also experieced soooo many things.
This is the reason why I am in AIESEC.
Thanks for reading such a long article:)
