Because the people, who are crazy enough to think different, can change the world

As an AIESECer, I have realized that I'm part of something much bigger - an organization that represents the global youth voice! There is so much that we as youngsters can do using this platform.

Within 9 months of being part of this organization I have learnt so much! I've interacted with students, principals, corporate and made some really good friends too!! I can go on and on about what AIESEC has to offer. Be it Leadership opportunities, Exchange programs, Corporate and youth networking etc. But if I had to recommend it to you, it would be because of how much it has changed and impacted me. A year ago you would know me as a shy, quiet and not a very confident guy. From a Quiet person it has made me loud and vocal. It has given me opportunities time and time again to prove myself as an individual. I have seen change in me as a person, as a leader, as an orator in a span of 9 months. AIESEC gave me more than what my education gave me in one year. I feel ownership to what’s happening all over the world because this organization has taught me to be sensitive to such things. Yes, there have been highs and lows in my AIESEC journey but the culture, the people, the exposure and the diversity makes you fall in love with what you do. Another thing I have learnt until now through my AIESEC journey is that leadership is selfless challenging and lonely but an experience that stays with you forever. Through AIESEC I realized that most important thing is to make people around you happy, change the world around you, and create impact and to always look at the bigger picture.

AIESEC is that one organization that gives student the platform to experience how a business runs at a mere age of 18-19. The amount of opportunities that AIESEC has to offer young students, I doubt if there is any other organization that does the same. I believe that if every individual goes through an AIESEC experience, this world will be a different place, a better place.
I am a global Citizen. I’m an AIESECer.
While some may see them as the crazy, others genius. AIESECers are ones who see things differently. Because the people, who are crazy enough to think different, can change the world.
