The Global Volunteer (GV) Experience from a Student’s perspective


Ömer Karapınar – Istanbul Technical University, Department of Chemical Engineering, Freshman

“I never thought that my life would change completely just by clicking on a web link, but that’s what happened a year ago. And thanks to this change, I will be able to affect hundreds of lives. AIESEC offers people the opportunity to discover parts of themselves they might otherwise never understand in a lifetime, and as a result of these experiences, turns them into leaders. I was so proud to train people of all ages and contribute to their development through the social responsibility project I was a part of. I always say, the best 6 weeks of my life were spent with AIESEC and I will always be grateful to all my foreign friends for their support while I was there.”

Ezgi Aktürk – Beykent University, Department of Translation and Interpretation Studies (Russian)

“Moscow. 700 students whose different stories I got to know in 3 months. 700 different lives that I had the opportunity to touch with my fingertips, my smile, and my glances, just like the first flutterings of a butterfly’s wings. The start of the storm that will change things years later. I rightly decided to go to Moscow for my AIESEC internship program for academic reasons. While I continued to work on my professional development, I also provided education to children who held my hand in their little ones until the end of our journey together. As we walked down the street, I told them what we saw in English and they told it to me in Russian, and we wrote new stories. AIESEC provided the roof for all these unique experiences. Physical things are temporary. What’s important is to gain experience in my opinion. To use these experiences to gain new perspectives on life. I would like to thank AIESEC for its teamwork that started in 1948 with the first flaps of a butterfly’s wings.
