Our Interns

KOCAELİ


Nikolas Ariyoshi / Brazil Company:Mondi Group When I decided to do my internship with AIESEC I was looking for some different experience from all I had so far. I wanted to confirm whom I was, to challenge myself, to see what I was capable to do. Where better to do that than with people who grew up in the other side of the world? My internship was about teaching English to the employees of a multinational company for 9 months and doing it not only helped me develop new competences faster but helped me to know myself better.

Summarizing: Self-knowledge, development, society impact, adventure’s feeling and new unforgettable friends made my internship.

Rio Wahab / Indonesia Company: Sanlab Software AIESEC was something new and very different from me, I didn't know how it works, I didn't know the people and what I cared about was an experience in an international company in a foreign country. I was working as game designer in this company and I've got to say that it wasn't just about the job it was about the people I've met, the new culture I ve been exposed to together it helped me develop, be open and creative, listen more, work More. It feels like a footprint in my heart and I know it's never gonna disappear, because it definitely changed me. Among the things I've learnt in this internship, is that world is so big and small at the same time. I've spent a lot of time travelling through Turkey and I met people from all corners of the world. Hopefully, I will be able to meet them again and to have new experiences.
