Legendary newspaper THE TIMES inspired us - the editors - to respect British heroes and taste English sense of humor. What I'm talking about? Just read unbelievable and phenomenal stories about:
SCANDAL: I’m not an AIESECer campaign $1 million CELEBRETIES we’ve recruited TOP AIESEC marriage couples HOTTEST events that influence our everyday life Who will become next MCP
... just the cleverest catches glimpses of Britain!
I'M NOT AN AIESECER CAMPAIGN HAS ALREADY STARTED
Chief Editor Dasha Skripkina
Chief Designer Kirill Zima
“Yeah, I'm promoting Impossible-isnothing motto, but it doesn't mean that I'm an AIESECer!”
Photographers vkontakte.ru, Lordik, Prorok, Anechka
Confused? Surprised? Shocked? Believe me, I felt like this when me manager brought me such kind of poster!

Maybe you'll tell me that every day I can read tonnes of newspapers with gossips about me of and I should stop pretending that it's first time tonnes when I'm facing with the outrageouslie! Frankly speaking I've never heard about AIESEC before. So when I checked the web of this organisation I found myself much more embarrassed. From the one site it’s cool to be an alumnus like Margaret Thatcher, but from the other…you haven’t pay me a penny for using my pictures!!! I don’t wanna continue talking, ‘cause I feel really sad that I’ve missed such unique opportunity. P.S. a strong request for you-know-who to pay the invoice which my manager has sent to you!
Quiz Section Do you believe that impossible is nothing?! Sit down and calm yourself, 'cause there is no winner this month! Nobody knew that after AutCo we celebrated the wedding of Margarita and Yaroslav Pokh! All AIESEC in Ukraine congratulates you guys! Next month's task will be easy and festive.

OBSERVING LICS… Lugansk
“I was extremely happy to meet all those people, and especially my co-chair and just big friend – Skripka. The time spent there was awesome! Singing at nights, screaming and learning during days. And proactivity session prepared together with Dashka in one hour. As Rostik always says – That’s not a problem, it’s a challenge=) The delegates were super-duper cool, if you’re reading this, just know that KtolubitLugansk? – YalubluLugansk! Lublu-Lublu-LubluLublu-Lublu!”
“Inspired delegates, sparkling eyes, effective learning, dancing a lot and screaming – screaming. Also was MashaZholudeva, dancing EuroCo “Hip hip hooray!” in the way she always does – with an unforgettable rhythm feeling=) She was the dancing queen on this amazing conference.”
“Some of the recruited Berdik members are simply crazy, that is not a news=) Half of them plays KVN, the future and hope of H.P.Z.Ya team and I am sure for the whole AIESEC in Ukraine! They are sooooo intelligent. And thank you, Bradilka, for reading them Covey aloud on the sessions. I’m sure they are proactive enough now=)”
Franik “It was one of the chop-chopiest conferences ever!!! These 3 days slept so quickly, but nevertheless everyone got on well in benefiting. Somebody tried and enjoyed the role of faci, somebody discovered the new side of learning, somebody is still dancing wild AIESEC dances...
Be ready to become a Britney! Even if you are not a female :) Last month 12 members of AIESEC have visited the annual European PRcongress. On the congress they had an opportunity to learn about world experience and the Ukrainian practice of PR-tools usage from leading experts in the field of strategic communications from Australia, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Russia, Ukraine, the USA, Turkey, Finland, CzechRepublic, Switzerland and other countries. In comparison with last year the quantity of speakers and participants of the congress has increased, and their geography has extended. The topic of the congress sounded like «The owner of a reputation or who is responsible for reputation of the company”. The Netherland’s representative and just all foreign guests tried to prove the audience that CEO is a kind of pop star who should shine extremely bright in media and all significant events. His Ukrainian colleagues had another opinion. They said that CEO has to control working process, motivate employees, create strategies etc. and the level of his publicity doesn’t influence too much at the company’s reputation.
THERE & BACK
Or AIESEC, EU and Ukrainians
…After 3 days of traveling and surprises when finally you start to recognize flags of European countries it means that you are at EuroCo.

EuroCo beginning of journey in pictures 7 am, Bratislava. We have just arrived to Slovakian capital by bus. What to do? Where to go? Such kind of questions people usually ask themselves being in unknown place. Well, we didn’t have such questions and decided to go, how do U think, where? Yeap, straight to Vienna, Austria.Actually, the road took less time then to get from Ivano-Frankivsk to Ternopil.
Almost no money, no guide, but map in our hands – yahoo! We saw some differences and some similarities: toilets with opera music inside, promoters that use 5-7 languages, subways with garbage and police officers looking at drinking youth at the museum. On the way back to Bratislava someone said: I’m not sure, but one OC responsible should have met us at bus station in the morning. We hope she didn’t wait for too long…oops!
…So, I’ve described legendary beginning of EuroCo. Read the end of this story on page 4.
And at the end I want to use my status to write something really personal...
This edition of Unlimited News is unique. Not because I finally felt contribution of all of you. Guys, thanks for all ideas, inputs, sent MBs of pictures and articles... This support means a lot for me! But I'm writing here not only to congratulate all of you with 3rd edition of Unlimited News and thank all of you for loyalty =) I couldn't kept myself from writing because of one miracle circumstance...When I found out that 15th of November is Bday of this person I realised that it's destiny!!! It's destiny for HIM to take the role of designer of this special edition!!! And when I firstly heard his voice believe it or not, but I felt that HE will do his best to make something special for you!!!! ...checking his job I analysed that HE can materialize love, passion, desire, efforts and innovations into this on-line newsletter.

Yours truly, Skripka
