This is Engy Esmat , an amazing AIESEC GUC Exchange Participant. Last November, she went to Turkey on Exchange. She went there as the shy girl who had a lot to explore yet, an only child who needed to learn a lot about independence and an Egyptian girl who wanted to break out of all cultural boundaries.
Now here she is, 6 weeks into her internship, standing next to an Indonesian intern, raising an Indian flag and bridging a cultural gap in the hearts and minds of next generations. 6 weeks into her internship, Engy is more self-dependent and goal-oriented than ever. 6 weeks into her internship, she experienced a lot more than she would have had in years. 6 weeks into her internship, Engy gave everyone with her in this internship a reason to love and respect her home country: Egypt.
Her internship might be ending soon, but she managed to create lifetime friendships that left an impact on who she is going to be from now on. Now, Engy has a home in 10 different countries. Now, Engy truly is a change agent in our world.
And this, this is just one story of how much AIESEC can change your life; to the better, to what you thought was never possible :)
