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 »
I wanted to do something different this summer; go somewhere I haven’t been before, meet new people from all over the world and make a positive change. This is why I decided to spend my summer as a volunteer with AIESEC. Through AIESEC I found a great project, working with a girls’ orphanage as an English & Dance Teacher, and this is how I spent my summer in Thessaloniki, Greece.
Six months ago I didn’t know AIESEC existed, and I probably still wouldn’t if it wasn’t for my sister. As students in Lund, last year we where both thinking about internships and so we, or well she, found out about AIESEC. I had decided early in the fall that I would spend the spring term doing something that wasn’t studying. I needed to get out of that bubble and into another reality, and I sure did!
I decided to do an AIESEC Global Citizen internship because I wanted to do something different for the summer. AIESEC could offer me with chance to travel, gain professional experience, meet new people, and have an impact on society, which is exactly what I wanted. For my exchange, I went to Thessaloniki in Greece.
AIESEC’s Global Citizen is our international volunteering program. Students have an opportunity to have an intense, cross-cultural personal development experience, while working with NGOs’, Schools or Start Ups in one of 126 different countries! You have an opportunity to be an agent of change in society by creating a positive social impact.Read More »
