Never an easy thing having friends who were part of the Global Citizen volunteering program. Listening to their endless stories, about how lucky they got during their journey, or how the experience had changed their lives, can only make you wish you knew about AIESEC’s opportunities a little earlier.
As sharing is caring, mates from my local committee wanted to tell you about their life-changing experiences.
“Going on a volunteering experience with AIESEC isn’t just an opportunity to explore the world. I know that now, anywhere I’ll go, I have family. Being surrounded by those people during my journey in São Paulo – Brazil was the best experience I’ve ever had so far. Don’t be afraid to be out of your comfort zone, away from your habits. Take every opportunity to celebrate life and create the best stories. That’s what I did!”
“My experience with AIESEC was one of the best things that ever happened to me. Everything went incredibly smooth from the beginning to the end. I was surprised how fast and easy was to find an opportunity in India, Bangalore. I went there and the local people took good care of me. I met the most amazing people that I encountered in my life. Working with children was a bit challenging but immensely fun. Getting out of my comfort zone and facing some obstacles on my own really helped me improving myself. I would recommend anyone to try AIESEC’s programs and live the same amazing thing that I lived.”
– Youssef Ben Ahmed
Thinking about their experiences, I can picture which places I will be visiting in the future, and imagine in how many ways I can affect peoples’ lives.
I can only wait for summer to come, to cease the opportunity and go as far as AIESEC can take me.
Do you want to do something meaningful this summer?
You also have a chance to volunteer abroad.
