A. In November 2014 I went to an international conference in Naples, Italy. It was the first time, that I saw people from 40 different countries in one room. We had very eye-opening and diverse conversations about how we see the the problems of the world today.
A. World Citizen! Before I came to AIESEC I was already interested in different cultures and international relations. After I came to AIESEC I got the chance to actually have conversations with people from all over the planet, that want to make the world a better place. With all these insights that I get from the members of AIESEC all over the world I’m able to understand it and if I’m able to understand it, I can start to change it.
A. I want to work in undeveloped countries and help them grow their economy from within.
A. AIESEC gave me the opportunity to meet people that have similar interests then me. It also provided me with challenging environments that let me discover what I really want in life.
A. Yes, I have been to 15 countries on 3 different continents so far. I am currently in the US as an exchange student and originally from Germany.
A. The one international experience that changed my life was when I visited a friend India for four weeks. Before that I have only traveled Europe, which is also nice, but hasn’t been very much of a culture shock for me. After experiencing India, my view on many things changed for ever. It was very eye-opening to see a totally different part of the world, were people are very poor and live in the most primitive realities. This showed me how privileged we are in Europe and the US.
Currently I’m living in the US, which is considered to be similar to Europe, but I can tell you it is definitely way different than expected. Living here has shown me how different cultures can be even though they might be considered very similar.
A. I can only very strongly recommend applying to be a part of AIESEC. It has not only changed my life, but also provided me with a great amount of friends that are striving for the same goals as I do.
