Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. -Mark Twain

Its a simple desicion that you take will give you a story to tell. It all lies in that one desicion.

The youth is a period of life that defines freedom,and the urge to see the world . It is hence the most remembered part of ones lifespan, because it is this time, when the story of one's life is made.

How many of us take risks, or even test ourselves? How many of us have come out of our shell, out of our comfort zone and done something worthwhile? Like say learn a new language?Travel a country?

We at AIESEC, believe in taking up anything and everything that life has to offer. We are a people’s organisation. The only thing that AIESEC is what it is , is ONLY because the sheer attitude of the youth involved with it.

One such opportunity is an International Internship. Its like living one and a half month of a life never lived before. You are tested at everytime, right from living independently, to meeting strangers, to working on a social cause in another country, to conceptualizing projects, to implementing them. It involves a hands on leadership experience where, one gets to take initiative and understand what goes in the making of a team. It gives one the taste of real work culture that one is going to face in say 5 years from now.

Have a look at what is in store for you: http://www.scribd.com/doc/64782328/Exchange-Participant-Help-Book

Its an opportunity to give yourself a chance to have a life changing experience. Its one simple desicion that could cause you no regrets later.

Go Global and have a story to tell.

Be A Change Agent

If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. ~Mary Engelbreit

The entire world is talking of change. Change is a symbol of growth, a symbol of hope and optimism. An indication that the way things have been going will change their course, for the better or for the worst.

What does change mean to us as the youth, the future leaders of this country?

Does it mean talking of big things in big debates or does it mean making huge promises and forgetting them as we move forward to bigger things in life.?

How many of us, actually think of things like change and the future of our country? We belonging to a generation of people who are fast paced and selfish, Do we have time to STOP and THINK about where this world, our country, out city, our peers or even we are heading to?

What does it mean to the US, to be a change Agent?

Does change really have to be measured by magnitude? If I change one person’s way of thinking? Am I a less of a change agent?

So many questions. Unlimited answers.Unlimited opinions.

But there were a bunch of students way back in the 1947, who thought of this, who took time and understood these questions and started a quest, to look for answers, which they found, not through looking up books in libraries, not by discussing it and talking, but BY BEING Change Agents Themselves.

Thus was founded the beautiful concept of AIESEC.

AIESEC is a place where people bring about change. Not by preaching it, but by living it. When we talk of change, we not only talk of change that we want to bring about in the social factors that effect the society like child rights, or animal rights, or women empowerment, We talk of change that is much beyond this. We as the youth of our nation realize that change does not start by cleaning up a village, or by holding a rally. Change needs to be initiated from within, The first change that needs to occur is not in the form of action but in thought.

Lets talk of a change AIESECers are consistently trying to make, that is not visible.A change of a mindset , a change of a personality.

How do we do this? By giving people an opportunity to introspect to where they stand in this fast paced word. To experience culture and diversity, to evolve as a human beings. Most importantly, to be open to change.

By giving them a power packed internship experience, in a new city, in a new country, where they learn to be independent which is nothing but a glimpse of what the future has in store for them, we give young individuals, an opportunity to develop themselves and hence be able to be understand what change means and make more responsible and better change agents.

Whether you change the world, a country , a city, a bunch of people or an individual , you are doing your bit as the youth. Be it one or hundred people that you change, change stands for what it is.

If we don't change , we don't grow. If we don't grow , we aren't really living.

Be a Change Agent.
