Greetings to you dear friends today I bring to you a write up about leadership development with AIESEC and my personal experience in the organization.
AIESEC is an international organization for students in science, commerce an economics. This organization began after Second World War when 7 students decided to make a change and solve the issues which caused the conflicts around the world. This gave rise to the organization as a means to have a cross-cultural exchange to understand people and know why they do things they do. The organization has existed for 73 years and exists in bout 130 countries with students moving across the world through internship opportunities and projects.
I joined AIESEC in November 2016 as a member of Local Committee Bamenda as a member during the period when the Anglophone crisis started. I was interested in meeting new people and also developing and exploring my talents. I was caught by our national vice presidents who came to talk to us about the organization; Aime Mounde in charge of Incoming Exchange and David from NIGERIA in charge of business development. So I joined knowing I will meet new people. Unfortunately our LC didn’t have intended activities and so many of my friends let after attending a conference and a volunteer project together. Having my determination I continued alone and I have attended 12 conferences nationally and internationally, held 8 leadership positions and I am presently the national vice president in charge of finance and legal administration. It has been a wonderful experience these 5 years of experience and development.
