  • Arrival to Vietnam - Claudia's story - AIESEC
    looked like one of those golf cars and you felt like you were gonna fall any second But well that was the first meeting with Vietnamese traffic and it was a rather nice one compared to the rest hehe Then after getting home showering I shower somewhere between 1 and 4 times a day here cleaning and complaining about cleaning I started getting the real feeling of this place Going food shopping taught me how waiting in line is not the easiest thing for my patience as they just randomly go in front of you and no one complains I mean I ve been in countries where people skip the line but then everyone just yells at them I also figured out that getting used to 1DKK 3000VND is crazy And then fun begun again they held my hand the first and second and third time I had to cross the street I had my first motorbike ride I got introduced to the street food experience and I figured that at least for a month I will be continuously looking forward to food This would be proven right again and again as I love food on the streets in the restaurants at work we eat rice EVERY DAY and I am still not bored of it I did appreciate rice less weekend though although not sure if it counts because I had rice noodles P And yeah I am trying very hard not to spam everyone with food pictures And down to the last thing I wanted to say today it just felt so great to already have someone here to annoy for dinner evening walks food shopping and lazy Sunday mornings Having the AIESEC buddies and the other interns was the best thing ever I would have panicked really

    Denmark to enter the security check area waving bye bye to the dear people who accompanied me to the airport Now it s only a matter of hours At the Copenhagen Airport Denmark The application preparation goodbyes Going on an internship is not necessarily hard but it does require some perseverance In my experience the process was rather nice I had an AIESECer from Copenhagen constantly reminding me to improve my CV and apply thanks Yockey and once I got in contact with Summer my contact person in Vietnam 3 she and her teammates helped me through the whole thing prepping me for the interview visa application helping me find an apartment etc I guess for me the hardest part was just all the paperwork it took me from leaving Denmark but if you re Danish it will be ten times easier for you Then there s all the packing OMG how much stuff can one person collect during six years selling my bike and university books moneyzzz muwahaha The now empty flat in Denmark Then there are the goodbyes If you re a person like me who sucks at hugs and cries and prefers a see you later bro it will be a bit weird Thanks to all who spent some time to hug me goodbye the past two months all the besties travels and hygge times in Kongens Have and in Lyngby all the summer grills yaay there were like 10 sunny days this summer and aaall the food of Denmark Having a day where I meet up with someone for lunch someone else for afternoon cake dinner and someone else for after dinner desert and packing all in one day is not very normal for me but it was awesome And a huuuge apology to all the

    to eat with people obviously have fun and try to enjoy as much of Hanoi as possible I can t believe that almost half of my stay here is over and that now I should start making plans for the next stage of my life And where s next Vietnam Denmark some other place Oh well some day I ll figure that out Until then you can look at another one of my food pictures green peas and taro ice creams SINCE MY LAST POST DIDN T HAVE A FOOD PICTURE Next I WENT TO HONG KONG AND IT WAS AMAZING YAAAAY Arrival to Vietnam Claudia s story 24 August 2015 0 Comments in Experiences Abroad Vores erfaringer by Claudia The arrival So now it s been 11 days since I arrived to Ha Noi airport aaah I love the number 11 And I m still super excited about this trip I am definitely a lot more chill but super duper happy I decided to take this crazy step I am saying more chill because when I was in Qatar I was pretty close to running away and trying to board some other random plane P Even when I was waiting for my luggage in Hanoi I could not stop pacing and being crazy scared But then when I got out of the door and recognised my buddies thank God I had someone to pick me up I got so relaxed It was simply great to finally talk face to face have someone explain me all these tiny things about Vietnam and have someone trying to help me with my 1000 kg bags Oh and this is my favourite picture lately Yes we went with a taxi that looked like one of those golf cars and you felt like you were gonna fall any second But well that was the first meeting with Vietnamese traffic and it was a rather nice one compared to the rest hehe Then after getting home showering I shower somewhere between 1 and 4 times a day here cleaning and complaining about cleaning I started getting the real feeling of this place Going food shopping taught me how waiting in line is not the easiest thing for my patience as they just randomly go in front of you and no one complains I mean I ve been in countries where people skip the line but then everyone just yells at them I also figured out that getting used to 1DKK 3000VND is crazy And then fun begun again they held my hand the first and second and third time I had to cross the street I had my first motorbike ride I got introduced to the street food experience and I figured that at least for a month I will be continuously looking forward to food This would be proven right again and again as I love food on the streets in the restaurants at work we eat rice EVERY DAY and I am still

    change what they are unhappy about instead of going into war for someone else who intends to make a political statement out of bodies Whatever was just written here is but a small drop in a very big ocean We advise all our readers to remain informed to remain open minded and above all remain kind If you want to hear more about how AIESEC develops young leaders all over the globe to prevent conflicts head over to our article about our Leadership Development Model 2 0 or follow us on Facebook and help us reach our goals faster I FN handler det om hvad du har lavet ikke altid om hvad du har læst 19 February 2016 0 Comments in Hvad vi laver Our people by Borsi af Daniel Dang Nedergaard Nielsen I verdens muligvis vigtigste organisation FN kommer tusindvis af håbefulde unge gennem svingdørene som interns Så hvad adskiller en FN intern fra en almindelig universitetsstuderende Min egen erfaring med AIESEC som leder af en lokalafdeling med ansvar for at hente internationale unge til Danmark for danske virksomheder har ført til at jeg i dag er forbundet med nogle af de hurtigst voksende startups i Københavnsområdet Fokusér på dit studie men udforsk mulighederne for at lave studierelevant arbejde ved siden af universitetet fortalte Pernille Fenger Direktør for United Nations Population Fund Det er hovedbudskabet fra de otte talere for FN s Karrieredag den 17 februar Arrangementet som jeg og et par venner deltog ved var udsolgt to uger før dagen På trods af at interns er ulønnede ved FN er det hårde arbejde ved Marmormolen højt eftertragtet Og når du kommer ind i FN er ethvert job midlertidig så du behøver at bevise din værdi igen og igen De mennesker jeg er allermest stolt af at have arbejdet sammen med har tilskrevet AIESEC en stor del af deres nuværende stillinger FN s repræsentanter gentog i flere omgang at i FN er tempoet tårnhøjt og derfor er nåleøjet også lille Grundlæggende er der tre ting unge i dag skal se sig om efter 1 Praktisk erfaring Uanset om det er frivilligt lønnet eller anden slags arbejde skal det være karriere og ikke nødvendigvis studierelevant Fordi det er ofte er lettere at finde guld i Københavns gader end at lande det lækre job ved Mærsk bør vi studerende også arbejde frivilligt 2 International udsigt At kunne tale flydende engelsk var en fordel 25 år tilbage I FN i dag kræves det at man kan tale et af de seks officielle FN sprog Så måske er det på tide at støve det gamle gymnasie fransk af og lære at sige mere end Omelet du fromage 3 Hav det rigtige netværk Ligesom i de dage hvor ens veninde kendte dørmanden og man blev lukket ind i baren selvom man var under 18 så skal man i dag også være på fornavn med de mennesker der kan hjælpe os videre i vores karriere Ved FN og i livet skal vi lære hele tiden fortæller Anne Poulsen Direktør for FN s Nordiske World Food Programme Jobsikkerheden ved stort set alle virksomheder i dag er lavere end bare ti år tilbage Opfordringen er at vi unge skal holde os oppe på noderne og suge viden til os hvor som helst vi befinder os Den største gave vi kan give som vil vare for evigt er viden til os selv Med andre ord ambitiøse unge skal ud og finde mulighederne indenfor områder der på sigt kan give adgang til karrierer indenfor FN Min egen erfaring med AIESEC som leder af en lokalafdeling med ansvar for at hente internationale unge til Danmark for danske virksomheder har ført til at jeg i dag er forbundet med nogle af de hurtigst voksende startups i Københavnsområdet Det er startups som Churchdesk og Graduateland som jeg har haft fornøjelsen af at arbejde helt tæt med sideløbende med at jeg har været ansvarlig for ni medlemmers personlige og professionelle udvikling I dag er de forskellige steder i verden De mennesker jeg er allermest stolt af at have arbejdet sammen med har tilskrevet AIESEC en stor del af deres nuværende stillinger En af mine medlemmer fra Serbien blev med sin erfaring fra AIESEC hyret som den personlige assistent for den danske ambassadør til Serbien En anden er i dag butiksbestyrer for tre butikker og en tredje blev valgt til lokalformand og fik på siden et arbejde ved et ministerium og en fjerde fik lov at skrive en Ph D Det er nogle af de successhistorier jeg som en AIESEC er er mest stolt og ydmyg om Når Pernille Fenger snakker om at fokusere på sit studie og udforske mulighederne ved siden af nikkede jeg mit hoved næsten af led AIESEC har vist mine tidligere medlemmer en karrierevej fremad som de ikke havde tænkt sig da de startede i sin tid I dag er jeg overbevist om at jeg ikke bliver en del af køen til Magistrenes A kasse men en del af en spændende global fremtid med et utal af muligheder AIESEC UNIC ARE YOU WHERE YOU SHOULD BE 18 February 2016 0 Comments in Vores aftryk i Danmark by Borsi written by Stinne Friis Vognæs Find den samme artikel på dansk her What I do in AIESEC is exactly the things I have always wanted to do My dad recently asked me why I spend so much time on my volunteer work in AIESEC And that got me thinking Because people often ask me that and they find it really hard to understand that I spend more time on a volunteer job than on my paid job And no that is not really financially sustainable either The reason though is quite simple What I do in AIESEC is exactly the things I have always wanted to do As I told my dad when I m with the people in AIESEC and working all those hours I feel like the best version of myself I m surrounded by such a diverse group of people from all over the world with all kinds of study lines and completely different stories I actually feel most days that I have done just a little thing for this world to be a little bit better I get the chance to go to conferences abroad discuss current issues with other like minded people and get to know the culture and life of young people all over the world I pick up interns in the airport coming from the other side of the globe to work on their internship here in Copenhagen I get to know them teach them about Danish culture and hear everything about what life is like in their home country On a regular day I speak more English than Danish I get to be around people everyday that truly cares about the world and about what is going on in it not just their own reality I actually feel most days that I have done just a little thing for this world to be a little bit better That might sound cheesy But for me that is actually what it is like to be a member of AIESEC I have found it extremely liberating not to be afraid of saying that I want to make a difference in the world and take responsibility and make it my mission to be a positive impact on this planet and on the people around me That is also one of the main reasons why I am still active after two years and not planning to cut down anytime soon Because when you find something that makes you feel like the best version of yourself then that is probably where you should be when I m with the people in AIESEC and working all those hours I feel like the best version of myself I get to be around people everyday that truly cares about the world and about what is going on in it not just their own reality Interested in hearing more and joining us Find us on Facebook AIESEC Denmark like us and hear whenever we have recruitment We also encourage you to browse further and read other posts from the amazing individuals that make up the organization You can find post from AIESEC Aarhus and AIESEC AAU or read the background of our Leadership Development Model and hear more how it can

globe Find Palma in Hungary Claudia in Vietnam or Agne in Brazil THE RIGHT DEGREE VS THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE 17 February 2016 0 Comments in Vores aftryk i Danmark by Borsi by Francisca Morais The members of this organization are inspiring ambitious young leaders fromdifferent backgrounds having the chance to hang out with them has given me the energy to work harder than I thought I could Throughout my life my main focus was to get the right degree And although my motivation and ambition has always kept me going in the most recent years I have been looking for something that made me develop myself in ways that a university degree was not able to do While searching for ways to help me get an internship abroad for my third semester I came across AIESEC in the exact time where they were recruiting members Without knowing much about what it meant to be a member I decided to join and was happily accepted There are three questions you should ask every member 1 Why did you join AIESEC 2 What have you learned during this journey 3 What made you stay 1 Why did you join AIESEC In less than two years my university journey will end and before it does I want to spend my free time doing something where I could apply my degree in the practical manner and this seemed like the best way to do it 2 What have you learned in this journey It is very hard to know where to start when answering this question I could tell a lot of specific stories that made me reach certain conclusions but the main important ones are that I was selling myself short in my abilities This organization gave me the space to be solution oriented and act proactively They don t accept us to complain about something being wrong instead they ask us to fix it And for someone who is used to following the guidelines a teacher gives us otherwise the grade won t be as good it was very freeing to simply not having to overthink my decision and learned by doing I started seeing actual real results based on my actions instead of grades And it felt absolutely great when things started to work Suddenly my confidence increased Another key learning from this journey is that I finally really know what I wanted to do with my career path I have always had an idea but I wasn t sure until I put it into practice and now I can proudly answer the dreading question what do you want to after you complete your degree Finally my very pessimistic self about the future of the world was introduced to a group of people that are gathered all over the world trying to make it a better place And the best part of it all Its only run by young adults just like me 3 What made you stay One word people The members of this organization are inspiring ambitious young leaders from different backgrounds and having the chance to hang out with them really gave me the energy to work harder than I thought I could Nowadays I leave a long day at work feeling more energetic than I first arrived All in all if you wish you could do something more learn more and belong to an amazing group of extraordinary students you should join us 4 reasons to work in AIESEC Denmark 24 November 2015 0 Comments in Hvad vi laver Our people by Jose As Confucius put it about 2 500 years ago when you love your work you never work a day And that s about right Never have the past 2 5 years in AIESEC seemed like work to me My name is Zé I m a Portuguese guy working in the national office of AIESEC in Denmark and I m responsible for the marketing of the organization Last week I flew from Copenhagen to Switzerland where I was part of the team who organized a conference for 350 people in the Alps The objective of the conference was to gather all the members of AIESEC in Switzerland and connect them with the purpose of understanding the organization and how can they develop personally and professionally in order to bring a leadership development experience to hundreds of others more through exchange So what are the unique traits of this job You work with people from all corners of the earth At a point in time the whole organizing team sat at the dinner table and had the most hilarious conversation when a Tunisian and a Moroccan decided it would be fun to ask the Taiwanese to pronounce an Arabic term That s when I realized that I was working with 2 Brazilian 1 Venezuelan 1 Mexican 1 Taiwanese 1 Ghanaian 3 Swiss 1 Greek 1 Norwegian 1 Moroccan 1 Tunisian 1 Italian 1 French 1 Romanian and 1 Lithuanian Puff You work with people who dream higher than you can see In a previous conference sitting at a dinner table again I asked a girl from Tajikistan what was it that she wanted to do with her live and her answer left me speechless for a couple of seconds I want to win the Nobel Prize of Medicine she sipped one more spoon of her soup If I get to the end of my life and I have not achieved it I know it will all have been worth it because while working for it I will have changed the way we do medicine and have saved countless lives You work with people that are not afraid of changing the status quo In Switzerland I met Edward Tseng a Taiwanese working in AIESEC Malaysia who takes very seriously the fact that the education in East Asia is passive and each student finishes his or her degree ready to indulge in a 10 hour working day most of the times not having a weekend At the same time he also struggles with the fact that 40 of all food produced in Malaysia is thrown away without being consumed His commitment as the national responsible for volunteering exchanges is to grow the exchange participants coming to Malaysia this winter from 100 last year to 500 young people from all over the world By having them volunteering in schools evolving the students in practical education that broadens their horizons or by volunteering in local NGOs to tackle the issue of food waste You never work a day As Confucius put it about 2 500 years ago when you love your work you never work a day And that s about right Never have the past 2 5 years in AIESEC seemed like work to me So far it has been a place for fun personal evolution professional development amazing not working trips I ve been to 7 countries with AIESEC and an endless list of friends and contacts that warm my heart And while we do all this as members of this organization we develop youth with practical leadership experiences through exchange Isn t it the most unique job in the world Crazy exciting plans with a motorcycle 21 November 2015 0 Comments in Experiences Abroad Vores erfaringer by Claudia For any friends who wrote to me during the last weeks my answers were probably almost monosyllabic hehe sorry A lot happened thankfully just good stuff so here s a short blog post simply updating people on my life and the new plans I have Motorcycle I got a new baby 3 Well I m actually just renting my baby because it s cheaper for only 3 months OMG I AM HALF WAY THROUGH THE CONTRACT ALREADY But it s pretty amazing Traffic can be scary but once you understand the logic yes there is some logic to it it s not so bad The most important thing is to figure out if cars busses and other motorbikes are honking at you at someone else or if they re doing it because they re bored But with time you get it Also I realised how much easier it is when you don t have to beg for rides And how much faster you ll learn the map of Hanoi when you have to drive yourself I learnt in 2 days what I didn t manage to do in 2 months So now it s time to start making plans for short Sunday trips Making plans with new motorbike Although lately there is a focus on teaching English here many kids don t actually learn anything since they are not lucky enough to have a teacher who is used to always speaking English Teaching After being the MC for World Psoriasis Day on Sunday I realised that all my afternoons of watching movies should be spent on something more productive So I decided to finally bother and find a part time job teaching Yes it s true that this is partly because the extra money would be nice for paying for more food and that it will be a good learning experience for me but it s also because I want to help these kids Soo this is not the kindergarten I work at I just thought it was cute and I have no picture from
