My AIESEC exchange was truly a life-changing experience for me. Where else would I have had the opportunity to work in a refugee camp and blind school? (Both social projects that I am passionate about!) Having returned from my exchange, I have continued to find ways to contribute to the greater community e.g. volunteering in a refugee integration related programs and organisations. AIESEC's network of students are truly an amazing bunch of people who genuinely care about making a positive impact on the world. AND because they're students and recent grads, they're all super friendly and understanding. They just want to help you find the right program and opportunity for you! Key recommendation: keep an open mind! Things may not always go to plan but sometimes, spontaneity gets you an A+++ experience.
What would you improve about this program?
More fluid communication between the hosting entity and the home entity: sometimes there were delays.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
