AIESEC IN HONG KONG Member Committee President 2017-18 Application Booklet â€¨ Deadline: 22 December 2016 23:59 (GMT+8)
Dear courageous applicant, My mind flashed back to the day I determined to run for MCP when I was creating this application. It was the 9th Dec, the day when I made the most irrational and emotional decision of my life. I decided to run for MCP when there was huge uncertainty of getting no MC teammates, having self-doubt on whether my vision for this entity was the right way to go, fearing of letting down my “shifu” and alumni who had high expectations on me, receiving comments and criticisms on my leadership and past failures, facing personal struggle on career and family… Among hundreds of “NO” that I have been telling myself, there came this simple and only reason that I said “YES” at last - I love, and trust AIESEC in Hong Kong. I have seen how beautiful this entity could be, how great leaders could be cultivated, how united the national plenary could work towards the common goal, how the MC team could educate fellow AIESECers.. And at this moment when youths are having too much distrust in the decision-makers in the society, I trust this entity could bring a huge impact to Hong Kong by building up respect and trust among Hong Kongers. I witnessed the beautiful side of AIESEC in Hong Kong, and I just want to bring it to the next level. “Bok Jun Mo Fui” (to strive hard and leave no regret) is how they call it. I have had the honour to BJMF-ly lead and to serve this entity that I love for 6 months, and I can tell you there have been more setbacks than achievements. And you know what, you actually know how hard the journey could be, but what causes you to apply is just one simple reason that overrides all the “NO” in your head - your ownership towards AIESEC in Hong Kong. It is always my honour to lead and to serve a place that I love, and I look forward to passing this honour to you.
