The most important thing is, to be a leader. Anyone can be a leader, but it is not an easy task.
That is why there are only a few leaders all around the world. Leaders are essential role

organization or country is dependent on the leader and the decisions made by the leader.
Leaders are both born and made. Whether you are a born leader or not, it doesn’t matter. Be a
leader. That is the most valuable and excellent thing. Here at AIESEC, the best opportunities
are provided for you to find your inborn leadership traits and develop them. So, don’t hesitate
to grab the opportunity when it’s presented.
