    experiencing them I have also become better at managing my time and I improved my pedagogical skills I was also able to get to know a completely different and fascinating culture and see the various lifestyles in the village and in the city And I have made amazing friends The bonds you develop with people you are living and working with every day are really strong most importantly even if all we could have done was to make 40 children as happy as they had ever been it would have been worth it Sometimes people ask me what the use was of us going two weeks to a village and teaching kids for such a short time surely we couldn t have contributed with too much However they are missing the point We gave those children what they described as the best summer of their lives Even though these children are quite poor they don t lack anything Their problem is that they have parents who work very far away so they are alone Most of them live with their grandparents but they can t give appropriate guidance the children need at that age We were able to do this by talking to them about education and other alternatives And most importantly even if all we could have done was to make 40 children as happy as they had ever been it would have been worth it Liked the story Click here or here to read more or visit us on Facebook and learn about your opportunities GLOBAL CITIZEN HO CHI MINH MARK 17 February 2016 0 Comments in Experiences Abroad Vores erfaringer by Borsi written by Mark Lam Man Wai I believe AIESEC is helpful in assisting people to develop their global thinking and leadership I met lots of nice and eager interns from different countries in the project Since we have different knowledge background and culture sometimes it was really inspiring to discuss our topic issue with them Therefore without a doubt I would recommend AIESEC to my friends A bit about my project Basically we needed to organize workshops for high school and university students each week Before each workshop we had content meeting with other interns to discuss the topic the content and the format of the workshop For instance the theme for workshops of first two weeks was about basic sexual knowledge and HIV while the next 2 week were about abortion and LGBT issue in Vietnam Also in order to understand local issues more and do promotion for our project day outs were organized to collect local student s opinions about our topics and introduce S E P project to them Here are some photos about these tasks Regarding all practical matters like visa work permit vaccine injection I was provided with all the useful information such as where the interns in the past received their vaccine by my EP manager A bit about the processes My EP Manager was very helpful and responsible After I got the offer of S E P in Ho Chi Minh City I encountered some problem of using GIS Identity to finish my matching However she helped me solve the problem and finished the final matching procedure Besides the EP manager explained me everything and even shared her own outgoing exchange experience with me Regarding all practical matters like visa work permit vaccine injection I was provided with all the useful information such as where the interns in the past received their vaccine by my EP manager AIESEC Ho Chi Minh City organized different activities to help all interns understand more about Vietnamese culture and exchange their experiences For instance there was a welcoming party and language class at the beginning I learned some useful words like greeting and understood the Vietnamese living culture such as how to cross the road which is full of motorbike without being hit Sometimes the host LC organized city tour and food tour for us if we had day off During the food tour I got the chance to taste lots of special Vietnamese food like Vietnamese spring roll and bream Nearly the end of the project I joined the global village event and farewell party A bit about my experience Overall my impression of AIESEC is very positive I believe it is helpful in assisting people to develop their global thinking and leadership Since some interns of S E P are the member of AIESEC of their local countries they shown comprehensive thinking and excellent local public speaking during the discussion and workshops Therefore without a doubt I would recommend AIESEC to my friends I feel after the project I found out that my public speaking skills haven been sharpened and understood how to organise an effective workshop Besides since my intern team was very international we always had a fruitful sharing during the discussion due to our different cultural and education background All these met my expectation The best moment of my project was when I received the feedback and souvenir from the Vietnamese youth They said they were really thankful for our coming and looking forward to our next workshop which made me feel I have brought some change for them even though it was a small step In general I am satisfied of the whole project although there is some room for improvement I met lots of nice and eager interns from different countries in the project Since we have different knowledge background and culture sometimes it was really inspiring to discuss our topic issue with them Definitely I feel lucky to join S E P and enjoyed it very much If I have chance I will join more exchange abroad voluntary project again For more information on our Global Citizen programs you can read more about it on the website Alternatively you can read about some more experiences for example here Global Citizen Colombia Lena 12 February 2016 0 Comments in Experiences Abroad Vores erfaringer by Borsi My Stay in Colombia The story of Lena Juul Palsdorf Colombia turned out to give so much the people there are very open minded and greets you with open arms I wanted to see more and I didn t want to leave the people I had got to know I never thought I would be going abroad for any other reason than on vacation So when my friend told me that we should spend the summer volunteering somewhere I thought Yeah right never going to happen But the last few years so many things have changed for me made me stronger and forced me to get out of me comfort zone And every time it made me stronger so at some point I thought that I would give AIESEC a chance I hardly new anything and only made sure that somebody could take care of my cats before I signed with AIESEC Honestly I didn t now anything about Colombia before I went besides cocaine kidnappings and Shakira But I still went First of all because I felt secure that AIESEC wouldn t send me somewhere dangerous but also because I wanted to go with an open mind and challenge myself It was weird coming home I had my friend who understood but nobody else could understand I had never been to Latin or South America and I had recently learned some Spanish so all I knew was that I wanted to go somewhere there and that it had to be related somewhat to my bachelor that I m taking in city and environmental planning Time went by and I just couldn t find time to look for projects and it seemed overwhelming but one day I found a project in Colombia about environmental issues with a clean up event and my friend liked it as well The funny part was that we had no preferences about were to go but I had promised my friends and family that I of course wouldn t choose somewhere dangerous like Colombia The first two weeks there were very ambivalent We didn t get what we were promised But all of this made all the EPs very close and we decided not to give up and to get the best out of it The beginning was not how we thought it to be but the stay the experience and the people made it all wonderful in the end It s impossible to describe in words how it feels and what it meant I was even so lucky that due to all the circumstances my wonderful EP manager who had helped us through the tough start made sure that we could travel the last week or so after the event This meant that we also got to see other wonderful parts of Colombia and to meet even more people I did learn something professional but I got so much more out of it on a personal level than I could ever imagine Time went by so fast in the end I was forced to speak Spanish when I was alone because almost nobody speaks English in Bogotá and most of Colombia so my Spanish got a little better Every day I was forced to think outside the box and challenge myself in every way managing a team working with people with different backgrounds and personalities living in a country so different from what I was used to and the very different culture Time in Istanbul is time spent well 23 November 2015 0 Comments in Experiences Abroad Vores erfaringer by Borsi I had the chance to hold a presentation for the team which is located in Manchester It was quite a surprise when my boss notified me on the very last moment that I have to join a call however I took it as a challenge and it turned out to be quite good Dear All Well where shall I start this time There is so much happening in here as always fortunately I have no time to be bored however I could stand an additional4 hours day then I would have the chance to catch up with everything Lately I have been to Istanbul to visit Karolina therefore we had the chance for a small reunion also with Tomek and Dominik as well I must say that we are the worst tourists ever but personally I ve had the most fun in those 3 days we ve spent there The food is amazing I ve fallen in love with every bit I was taking and I m pretty sure that after one week I would have a food poisoning because my stomach would give up The city was amazing and on our last day we ve managed to visit most of the places which are worth to see so it was a very productive weekend In addition after we got back I had to start working again so it was more like a back to reality feeling that I got The work is still fine I love it although the workload is getting more extent and sometimes I feel like my brain will just explode at some point but I cannot complain because I m improving myself with every day passing by One of these days I had the chance to hold a presentation for the team which is located in Manchester It was quite a surprise when my boss notified me on the very last moment that I have to join a call however I took it as a challenge and it turned out to be quite good Moreover another surprising news was reaching me recently and that was a future job offer from my boss s side He approached me and my colleague Kristyna with the proposal that after we finish our internship we have the chance to join a different team which is also related to the risk department I was very flustered because it means that they are satisfied with our job so far which matter the most now Nevertheless I have a small struggle with my project somehow I cannot find the inspiration and not to mention the time to start writing something in order to have a quicker progress However I believe that I will manage to do it although maybe I should cut down a bit from the partying and I would have less reason to complain because of the lack of time I m having I guess I will end now the small summary of my past few days weeks and will come soon with new events trips parties and so on Stay tuned for the next time Pugs and Kisses Palmi 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 mine yet P 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 Many of the Vietnamese English teachers end up teaching the kids 5 words in English and then speaking Vietnamese to them without realising And I was impressed how many more opportunities there are for English speakers I ll teach twice a week for 4 6 year old kindergarten kids so I have to mostly play and sing with them I found out I really love it unexpected much I ll probably have to convince the teachers to change the syllabus a bit since they don t focus very much on teaching lots of words they d rather want me to teach them to write the alphabet And I hope I ll manage to get there on time every time since I have to pass through one of Hanoi s biggest traffic jams But I think that it will all go well and they ll learn lots of things and then they ll idolise me and I can make plans to take over the world with my new 8 minions and my motorbike This week I had time to reflect better about why I love to be in the National Support Team for AIESEC in Denmark I have the chance to work with lots of different projects to help out with driving a common culture and ensuring that everything the entities do in AIESEC in Denmark is sustainable National Support Team Actually this is not really one of the new plans but this week I had time to reflect better about why I love to be in the National Support Team for AIESEC in Denmark Right now I am working with Organisational Development which is simply amazing although I cannot be there physically to see the results with my own eyes still worth it though I have the chance to work with lots of different projects from being in charge of creating the framework for quarterly surveys that get people to reflect on the state of their entities and then analysing the results to helping out with driving a common culture and ensuring that everything the entities do in AIESEC in Denmark is sustainable A lot of the things I have to do are completely new to me but thankfully I have Fiete and Ena to help me with the steep learning curve I m mentioning this because I spent quite some time on it in October and November so it reflects pretty well why I was so busy during the last month I think in the first 2 weeks of October I had like 25 Skype hours on this The rest Then the rest of the time I pretty much just go out 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

    weird to see how all Danish people take their shoes off at school or in the office and walk around barefoot or in fluffy socks With time I got used to it and even appreciated being able to take off my annoying shoes whenever I felt like it To my surprise most women in Vietnam come to the office wearing nice fancy heels no idea how they manage to ride a motorbike like that and the moment they sit down at their workplace they change their shoes for ugly ish flip flops I just love this as wearing heels for more than 2 hours is hell for me Hierarchy and communication The hierarchy and communication in the companies is quite different In Denmark the structure is much flatter making it easy to reach out to most levels of management I only have experience in medium sized companies It s interesting for me to work now in a company where this is not the same it s not a worse experience it s just different In my current company it is still possible to reach higher levels of management but you must ensure that you have a good reason for bothering them This leads to a lot closer connection to your direct manager and if he she s awful it might leads to a lot of stress and outdated information on the other hand if he s good it makes work easier Light in the office Another weird similarity is the obsession with closing all blinds as soon as there is a bit of sun outside I guess here it makes more sense than in Denmark since they have enough sun and it might get too warm in the office But I still hate sitting inside with the lights turned on while there is such a beautiful day outside Company parties Although food and drinks are pretty much the same the entertainment is quite different People in Vietnam love to show their singing and dancing skills reason why every party ends up being a karaoke party or having a show Also there s this fun custom where people go around to different tables and toast and you can t really escape it In the end it always ends up being a fun experience There are probably more differences out there but the best part is that there are even more similarities I just gave weird examples so I guess you re going to have to come over here to figure out more One of my main learning points was that when you meet an evil boss it is their own nature not a cultural difference Caring about your team and being sincere is universal Using cultural excuses to dislike someone is definitely not a thing I ll be doing too soon PS Another difference in Vietnam most houses and offices have a small altar to worship ancestors and pray for luck and other stuff My office has one too How to
