Hello, Successor. It’s November 3rd, 2013. In 67 days, you and I are going to meet for the first time. It will be emotional for me, and an unforgettable moment for you. Later, we will work together to achieve something great. I hope you’re ready. If I’m being completely honest, it’s a bit difficult for me to accept that the time has come to pass on this responsibility. A year ago, I stood for MCP because I believed in AIESEC Puerto Rico, and had an inner drive to put it on the map for the world to see. I made a promise that I would build an entity of united LCs, capable of standing on their own feet. To this day, I still commit myself to this vision. Every small step in the right direction – every EP realized, every TN raised, every quality member who joins our youth movement – has made me proud to call myself the leader of AIESEC Puerto Rico. Every small step in the right direction has given me a sense of fulfillment and reassurance that this position was right for me. However, I am not the leader Puerto Rico needs next term. I firmly believe that we are getting back on track, but there is so much more that must be done. So much that I cannot offer. This is where you come in, successor. This island needs an intrepid individual who can build upon the foundation my predecessor and I have worked so diligently to develop. This island needs you. As the old adage goes, I can only promise that it won’t be easy. The MCP experience is a rollercoaster. There are ups and downs. The ride is filled with uncertainty at any given moment. It goes by so fast. Everyone has a different approach to this short ride. You can choose to scream with every bump you hit. Or, you can close your eyes with every loop the ride throws you for, waiting for it all to be over. But if you’re like me, you’ll hold on and enjoy the ride, with a steadfast attitude and an incontrovertible sense of humor. You’ll face numerous failures and frustrations. What’s important is that you learn from them and move on, never forgetting that these experiences will provide you with wisdom, if you’re willing to accept it. In 67 days, we’re going to meet, and I am going to be so proud of you. Here’s hoping that you are buckled in for the challenge, but ready to enjoy the experience. It will certainly be difficult, but you will always have me as your biggest champion. AIESECly yours,

Timothy White AIESEC Puerto Rico|President 13.14
