This one time… a curious boy walked into an AIESEC General Member Orientation. It was crowded, bustling, and somewhat disorienting. With two years of university behind him, he thought he knew a lot. An eager beaver no more, he was skeptical, and somewhat jaded. Buzzwords like “Learning opportunity” and “living[...]

A Moment in Time


My experience with AIESEC started when I went on exchange to Wrocław, Poland in the summer of 2012. AIESEC promised a unique, fulfilling internship and an unforgettable experience and my internship lived up to those expectations. From meeting so many people who had never set eyes on a Canadian before[...]

1.5 years of AIESEC


I feel that AIESEC is a really great place to develop yourself. It is hard to find such a flexible and diverse organization comparable to AIESEC at the student level. The saying “you get what you put in” is quite true in AIESEC, the opportunities are unlimited… The question is:[...]

Your Sandbox.


The beauty of AIESEC is that a large number of students with great passion and dedication towards a common goal work together in an extremely organized, professional, yet a fun style. My experience in Outgoing Exchange Portfolio has been nothing but a blessing as I have got to meet so[...]

Organized Passion


QRC- Quebec Regional Conference 2013 was the very first conference that I attended. Not only I was bombarded with amazing successful stories and what it truly means to be an AIESEC, I also got to know so many awesome and passionate people. I had so fun being part of the[...]

QRC 2013


It saddens me knowing that this combination will probably never be seen again. However, I am glad at the same time knowing that this change is for the better and we have grown as AIESECers. Even though I’ve only known these guys for a year, I had such a wonderful[...]

Bonding Night


The first team I join in AIESEC was the Team Leadership Program (TLP). I had the most amazing team members and it’s because of them, more than anything else, that I was happy I joined AIESEC. We were only 4 members, but we were a powerhouse of activity. There are[...]

My first team in AIESEC


So, I was one of the lucky people who, almost immediately upon joining AIESEC, got to go to a conference. Man did that change my entire view of what AIESEC is. I went to the Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic Region Conference (OQA) 2013, which was hosted in Montreal. The first day[...]

Welcome to AIESEC


What stuck with me most was all the shouting, the moves and all the French! In three days, I learned more chants and dances than I have learned in my entire life. Now I go out with friends to a club, and all I can do is wobble around doing[...]

QRC 2012: Is this a cult?


Couldn’t have asked for a better team or place or event to finish off my career with AIESEC. Hosting NC 2012 in Montreal as a combination of 2 LCs was one of the most intense, hilarious, time-consuming, psychosis-inducing things I ever committed myself to. But, you can bet that I[...]

OC for NC 2012


Simulation at NC 2013 will always be a conference highlight for me. Simulation is an intense 5 hours reenact of what a local committee goes through in a full year. From Outgoing Exchange raising Exchange Participants, Communication and Marketing promotion, Talent Management recruitment, Finance budgeting, Incoming Exchange matching to even[...]

Simulation at NC 2013

step back step forward

My first official day at AIESEC McGill was a huge eye opening one. Before I knew it, I was in a global community, meeting people from my university I would have never met, getting out of the Engineering bubble, learning a lot about myself through activities that put things into[...]

First day at AIESEC McGill

ICX Family

After working together with my fellow ICX-ers in the capacity of sales representatives for a few months, I knew that I could call them my friends. It was at the end of April 2013–when realizing that I would not be seeing their beaming faces, receiving their warm hugs, and laughing[...]

ICX: My home away from home


Just a few months ago, my team was successfully able to organize an amazing AIESEC Banquet with an OSCAR Awards theme. This event was one of my biggest accomplishments as a member of AIESEC McGill. Amazing buffet, dance performances, awards and recognition and even a DJ; everything made this night[...]

AIESEC McGill Banquet


In March of 2013 a delegation of 7 members was sent to attend an AIESEC conference in New Jersey and I was a part of it. Attending trainings for long hours every day, partying at night, socializing with students from all across America and learning from others experiences made this[...]

Roks Conference in New Jersey


Another month, another AIESEC travel adventure. This time a CEEDership (Cultural Envoy for Exchange Development) in Saint.Petersburg, Russia. (Привет из России) Although I haven’t been here a long time, I’ve already met people from all corners of the world such as Italy, Austria, India, Romania, Indonesia, Lithuania, Bulgaria. Another reminder[...]

Привет из России (hello From Russia) [St Petersburg, Russia]

Welcome to Guate

I was scared to go to a new place for an extended period of time, but the moment I landed in Guatemala and saw a tiny curly-haired girl waving a bit yellow poster that said AIESEC on it, I knew I would be okay. Thank you AIESEC USAC for giving[...]

Warm welcome in Guatemala!


It’s my first time in a Muslim country, let alone a Muslim country during Ramadan. As I mentally prepare myself to join in with the fasting, my neighbours who I’ve slowly been recognizing as family have already started their preparations – one more week til Ramadan. Today, they made Chebekia,[...]

Chebekia for Ramadan [Rabat, Morocco]

Wroclaw, Poland

On the very first night in Wroclaw, Poland, I was invited by a bunch of Polish students living in the residence I was staying at to join their party! They offered me the authentic Polish Vodka and told me how to cheer in Polish. “Na Zdrowie!”, they told me repeatedly[...]

Na Zdrowie [Wroclaw, Poland]


Talk about cultural differences. It was St. Patrick’s day so I was telling my friends that we should make pancakes! So Ania from Poland came with pancake ingredients and said we could make them! They weren’t going to be green pancakes, but I have a really vivid imagination so, meh.[...]

Pancakes. [Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia]


2 summers later, I can still remember every detail of those life-changing 8 weeks in Turkey, in a small welcoming city called Denizli. Teaching at HeyDil Atölyesi was a great experience: we were many interns coming from every corner of the world, from Mexico to Morocco, to Slovakia, Turkmenistan, etc.[...]

Merhaba Türkiye ! [Denizli, Turkey]


Each morning in India, I would wake up to these abrasive heat that made me dread the idea of going to work until I remember one small delight I’d treat myself to, fresh coconuts! It was a delicious way to get a cooling, cheap, and fairly healthy breakfast. It’s often[...]

Coconut Mornings [India]


Over ten weeks had passed, and I could call this home. Both of my Peruvian host families had truly adopted me, my students had taught me more than I could ever aspire to teach them, and the friends I had made knew me in the most unique way. I knew[...]

Goodbyes [Chosica, Peru]
