We warmly congratulate him and wish him all the best in his upcoming AIESEC journey !

AIESEC in UM Convocation Dinner On the 26th of October 2018, current and past AIESEC members came together to celebrate the success of our graduating seniors. We would like to thank past members of AIESEC in UM for joining the dinner and sharing their experience with the current AIESEC members. We hope that our members have gained new insights from the sharing. Once again, we would like to congratulate them on their welldeserved success !

AIESEC drilled me in a lot of ways, mainly in critical thinking, strategic planning and also most importantly presentation skills. I had a few other achievements after AIESEC which I would like to give credits to AIESEC for making me who I am. The skills that AIESEC had equipped me with is so useful that I stand a head-start compared to my other peers and I’m really grateful for being shaped into who I am today.

I decide to join Global Volunteer mainly because of two reasons, to spend my semester break with meaningful activities and another, to explore a new country and culture. The project I joined is Hope for Children and the job scope is mainly about teaching children English in a social protection centre located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

During the volunteering experience, I learnt to be more patient and also explore new techniques in simplifying things because many children there have very weak basis of English, thus repeating and simplifying things during the teaching is a must. Besides that, I have met a lot of other Exchange Participants around the world and learnt a lot from them. Overall, this global volunteer experience gave me a very strong foundation in communicating with different people from different ages and different backgrounds.

I would encourage everyone who’s reading this to apply for Global Volunteer. This is one thing that must be included in your bucket list! Meeting with different people with different background and culture teach me to be more tolerant and cautious with everything I say. Even though we are different, there is always common things that bind us. It’s really funny how dance, music, movie can be a language where everyone understands it very well. For this, I’m really grateful to be destined to meet with all of them. Never once I regret this decision. Till now, we’re still in contact and I’m looking forward to welcoming them in Malaysia!
