Choose the experience that best suits your profile
AIESEC helped me with all travel procedures and details, in addition to gaining teaching experience in a school and giving me a documented certificate in this regard, but it also helped me to meet and make friends with people from all over the world, they were volunteers like me.. .
During my experience, I worked on planning 2 events in Sao Paulo, learned a lot about customer relation management, and got a lot of new ideas about how marketing campaigns work there. The things I did helped me a lot when I went back to Egypt and changed the way I work.
Honestly, this experience taught me a lot, and I felt the amount of development that remained in me after I came back. I am able to leave an impact on people. It is the first time I see it. I have more confidence in myself, and I advise you to take the same experience.
The experience with AIESEC was comfortable and new. Anyone who wants to go out of his comfort zone, I advise him on AIESEC, because this is not travel, but it will be a benefit for you, and you will feel the difference that happens in your personality after the end of your travel period.
