I really love travelling, meeting new people, exploring new cultures, visiting new places and just going on an adventure. But what I love the most is a possibility to experience the true local life rather than travel as a hop-on hop-off tourist. This is one of the main reasons why I have decided to go on a Global Community Development Program (GCDP) project with AIESEC.
After two weeks spent in an ancient Italian city of Ancona I can truly say that going on an AIESEC project was the best decision ever! In Ancona I’m working with a group of students, who are developing an internationalization plan for an Italian company. The company that I’m responsible to prepare the analysis is making graphic design, prototypes, technical mapping and small-scale production for high fashion designer shoes. Read More »

From Zambia to Lund: Our Vice President of Incoming Exchange
Home to one of the seven wonders of the world (Mighty Victoria falls), is a beautiful tropical country called Zambia, it is located in Southern Central Africa and has about 14 Million inhabitants of which I am one of them. I am of the bantu speaking tribes that settled in the Northern part of the country after been defeated in war, but that is a long story all together about how it all went down and my fore fathers had to give up the fight (grab me aside and I will narrate the fights). However I am now living in Zambia´s capital city called Lusaka.
From Finland to Lund: Our Local Committee President
Originally, I’m from the capital area of Finland, but the Baltic Sea Archipelago is where I feel at home. Most of my extra time I like to spend by the sea, and I absolutely hate living inland. Despite my love for the salt water, I didn’t become a pirate, but moved to Skåne to study Global Politics.
From the U.S to Lund: Our Vice President of Outgoing Exchange and Global Citizen volunteer!
My AIESEC story is perhaps a more unusual one – it began with the desire to go on a volunteer internship and is now both that and a leadership position as the Vice President of Outgoing Exchange. Although first inspired by a combination of wanderlust and my studies in International Development, AIESEC has now become a extremely meaningful part of my life.
