Natalia and Hasan’s story

We asked a couple of questions to our members. Read below what do they think about AIESEC!

 What should people know about AIESEC?

It’s much more than they think. Whatever it is: a youth organization, place to meet new people, develop yourself or take part in international exchange – it’s all combined.

How did AIESEC help you to develop yourself?

From everyday actions (like making phone calls without being awkward), through speaking my mind to fighting for what I believe in.

What kind of people did you meet in AIESEC?

Open minded, ready to help and passionate about the things they do.

What kind of impact did you have in the world/local reality thanks to AIESEC?

My Mum decided to pursuit her passion to Italian language and participated in one of the projects we had.

 Do you have any story you want to share?

In AIESEC I met people, who I can call my real friends (which was unbeliveable for me before joining)

 What should people know about AIESEC?

People should know the aim of AIESEC, and What makes AIESEC different than other organizations or a corporate company.

How did AIESEC help you to develop yourself?

AIESEC provided me a platform to practice my communication and social skills, with that it also gave me management qualities and sense of responsibility. That has helped me a lot to develop myself.

What kind of people did you meet in AIESEC?

I have met people who are exploring themselves, who are lost and trying to find something meaningful to do. I have also met people who are passionate about shaping the world’s future.

What kind of impact did you have in the world/local reality thanks to AIESEC?

I came to realize how important it is to understand other people to learn about their culture and perceptions, AIESEC gave me the sense of what’s right and what’s wrong and ability to make toughest of the decision at times.

 Do you have any story you want to share?

When i first joined AIESEC, i was not in a good state, i was going through some of my very dark tough days of life. But AIESEC, gave me a family, showed me that there are people who still care about every single one out there. And that helped me overcome my situations.
