Member Committee President & Incoming Exchange
I have just finished my Master 2 in Marketing at Dauphine and am taking on this opportunity in AIESEC to put my skills into practice for this organization and make a change for the future, both for AIESEC but also for my own.
As someone recently told me, “AIESEC is the chance to try out all the things that you’ve always wanted to do and at the same time gain valuable skills. It’s an opportunity to learn and practice at the same time”. I applied for AIESEC France believing I could truly make a difference in this organization and am committed to making a change, no matter how small, to ensure that we grow, both as people and also as an organization.
After this experience, I will continue my career in International Sales and Marketing, with a particular interest for Asian countries. I hope to live as many challenging opportunities as possible in the upcoming years and AIESEC is one of them!
Katarzyna Chareza Member Committee Vice President Talent Management & Strategy
I was a student of University of Szczecin, which is my hometown. I graduated in October 2011 with a Master degree in Economics with a specialization in Foreign Trade.
I joined AIESEC in 2008 and almost all my AIESEC Way is connected to Talent Management / Human Resources area. 2 years ago I was in National Trainers Team in AIESEC Poland, so I had a chance to practice my facilitation skills on national and international conferences. Year after that I decided to stay in AIESEC Poland as MCVP TM. Right now I'm continuing my AIESEC path in France. I love to travel - my biggest adventure so far was during my trip across Morocco. But my ambitions is to see Great Wall of China and Grand Canyon. In this year I want to explore French culture and habits. I also promised myself that I will learn French language:)
Member Committee Vice President Finance
I joined AIESEC in 2010 as a member of the ICX Team. Half year later I became the leader of the team and from July, 2011 I was working as the LCVP F and ICX GCDP (former DT). During this year I was also working on couple of local and national projects and helped to organize conferences, such as Global Leaders' Summit 2012 in Hungary which was one of my biggest experience so far. Currently I am the MCVPF in AIESEC in France.
I am from Hungary where I'm studying at Szent Istvรกn University of Gรถdรถllล, my major and also my specialization is finance and accounting, and I have one semester left until graduation.
Beforehand I used to sing for couple of years and I also played the Flute for 8 years. Since I started the University I'm not performing in music I just enjoy while others are playing. The biggest goal of my life is to find the perfect job what I really love and I can feel comfortable with. As I see myself in the future I'd like to work as an auditor, and I think, fortunately I found the best way to reach it.
April Mae Ong Vano Member Committee Vice President Outgoing Exchange
I finished my bachelors degree in European Studies International Relations and minor in French Studies at the Ateneo de Manila University.
I joined AIESEC in my first year in 2008 and I have served the organization as LCVPOGX and LCVPICX. My last year I worked as MCVP Projects for AIESEC in the Philippines. Now, I am the MCVPOGX for AIESEC in France.
I love to travel and experience different things whether it be in my country or abroad. I also enjoy the performing arts. I used to dance ballet and for now, I appreciate watching them and other kinds of theatre shows. I am also very active in socio-civic activities including my work with AIESEC and other youth organizations. In the future, I hope to work for an international organization like the UN and/or public administration through our foreign service. Also, I would like to start my own company that would be a social business venture that would be international in scope but based in the Philippines.
Bryan Corbion Member Committee Vice President Business Development
I am studying in Reims Management School and I took a gap year between my first and second year of Master to be part of the MC of AIESEC France.
I joined AIESEC in 2010 and apart from that I like reading, traveling and meeting people!
My ambitions in my life are to live abroad for a while, ideally work in Asia (China, Korea, Taiwan). I do not know yet if I would rather work in a big company or in a SME but what I know is that I would like to work in sales department.
Alina Boaca Member Committee Vice President Organizational Development
Last month I officially became a graduate after getting my diploma from the University of Kent for my BAHons in Politics and International Relations with French.
I joined AIESEC during my Erasmus in France at SciencesPo. I started my AIESEC experience in the area of Talent Management by being team leader of organizational tracking and after leaving France I applied as virtual NST for the position of HR Project Coordinator and thus started working at national level.
After half a year of travelling between France and the UK I decided to apply for a position in the MC. Currently I am MCVP Organisational Development.
