Experience Stories

“Best experience was learning how to make Cappuccino. It was fascinating to me.

I got to know so many new people and I learned so many new things in this country including the culture and their language.

I definitely improved my communication skills. I also learned how to appreciate the cultural differences with an open mind.”

“I was lucky enough to grab such an enchanting and enlightening opportunity by being a part of the project “Discover school’s Winter edition’19” which was conducted by AIESEC local committee, Oradea Romania on last winter. The project was under ‘quality education’. I was assigned to conduct education sessions for the primary school kids, which was intended to raise the Romanian education system by making an impact for 1% of Romanian population.”

“It’s good and excited. And everything is different here in Italy. Kind of a new experience for me. They are very unique and their thinking pattern is different from us. They are good but that goodness is not like ours. I don’t know how to explain and their bond among family members is very strong. Same like in Sri Lanka”
