Official Delegates Booklet
Bring with you...
… Oriol, the patience and accuracy of the team, who from hundreds of kilometers away, sent me a mail with an impactful message: “Do you still believe in me?”. It was the first time someone who I’m getting to know with asks me this question. Here comes the impact. …Anna, the constancy and effectiveness, who after a challenging meeting with a partner, stated “I would have been wrong if I had not applied for being part of this team. This experience is helping me to find answers to deep personal questions”. I was only looking for an OCVP meaningful experience. Objective fulfilled. …Clara, the positivism and transparency, who during an OC Meeting realized that she was making things happen. It was not about words and utopias; it was about her contribution, growth and experience. …Sheila, the voice of the inspiration and commitment, who decided to give all her passion and effort to put the words into images. Now it’s time to put her personal dreams into action plans, since I think she has already realized she is unstoppable.
…Miguel, the most energetic person in the team. He spent some weeks abroad and when he was back noticed that many things had changed. It was not about the progress and process; it was about the team bonding and team culture. …Carlos, one of the most professional, ambitious and interesting youngsters I have ever met, who asked me, “Ivan, why did you decide to apply for the OC if you had already lived such a life-changing experience within AIESEC?”.
And the response is such easy as YOU. All these MAKERS! already mentioned had an impact on me. I think we should not only focus on leadership, development or . I consider we should talk about integrity. We cannot talk about responsibility towards the society if we don’t talk about ourselves, if we don’t talk about the selfresponsibility. Dear delegate of KICK OFF Barcelona 2013, make sure you have an impact on the society, make sure your own contribution and experience is more than worth it, but at the same time make sure you live your own life with integrity. Is what you say, think, feel and believe in totally aligned with what you do? At the end it’s all about being a better person. This is, in my opinion, the most real way to make an impact. I encourage you to WAVE YOU UP and I wish you a full of meaning AIESEC journey. A big and warm hug; Ivan Sánchez, OCP
Waves pass by and never come back. Waves are all unique and different, like every person in the world. Waves remove problems, shake minds, bring new challenges. Souls are the waves which make the individual improve and move forward. We should become aware of the amount of energy weâ€™ve gotâ€Ś the amount of energy we ARE.
Wave is movement, and move is change. A single wave cannot make the difference, but if itâ€™s joined together with more tiny waves, it can become something bigger, something outstanding and something to follow.
Imagine the walk the wave makes. A lot of force, moving and changing its environment, up to a point in which it crashes into a rock and dies. We are born to die, but also to change our society, to move it and to enhace it to reach higher targets. As waves, we are changemakers.
Wave you up is movement, it’s the energy you have to have in every single moment. The energy to take every opportunity life gives us. Waves are also the Mediterranean sea, the identity that forms part of us and gives us some unique characteristics of which we have to be proud of. Waves are us, are like a way that we should follow, waves are life.
Wave you up is more tan the movement. It’s the people around you, with whom you’ve grown preparing everything. With whom you’ve fallen but with whom you’ve stand up. Waves are the movement, but also the people who make that movement feasible.
Waves are the movement that sustain ourselves; waves are like the engine that promotes our craziest targets; wave is opportunity, opportunity to change, to discover, to experience… AIESEC is the wave.
