Words from MCP 16-17 Dear future candidate,
I want to congratulate you on your bravery to consider being part of member committee body of AIESEC in Latvia for the term 17-18, and I can assure that it is going to be a life-changing experience. About a year ago I took the same decision for the second time in the same entity, yes twice, this is how much I felt in love and connected to this entity, and as a scary it was, I can not describe how I am glad that I took it. Without any doubt it is the most intense challenging experience where you are given the chance to challenge the potential of the entity and make an impact on the society while you are learning and developing, and pushing yourself beyond the limits. AIESEC in Latvia is looking for brave motivated leaders who believe in the potentials and the strength of this entity and are committed to seeing growth not just for the sake of the entity but for the overall good of the organization. Do you want to take an amazing, life-changing experience? Do you want to drive the growth in AIESEC in Latvia? Then you are in the right place, put your heart and passion in this process, and most importantly enjoy it. If Your Dreams Don't Scare You, They Aren't Big Enough! Best of luck! Hodhaifa Khadraoui MCP 16-17 AIESEC in Latvia
