“I was here” Patricia Moran

from Paraguay

When I finished college, I thought about which way to go, I wanted to do something different, learn new things, always following my desire to know another part of the world. I thought that just being a doctor or nurse was the only way to help. Until I found AIESEC and the Smarketing project, I looked at the photos of Joao Pessoa and fell in love and didn’t hesitate to apply . I met friends from all over the world , I learned to speak a new language , I challenged myself, I lived a different reality, I learned to appreciate the things I have and stop complaining about little things , and that I could do something for others, and most importantly to me, I won a new family. Since I made my Exchange, I’m not indifferent to the things that happen around me and I turned an AIESEC volunteer in Paraguay . Perform my volunteering in Joao Pessoa was one of the most important things that happened in my life.
