"AIESEC opens the world up to young people, and it opened it up for me. Through their programs, work opportunities, conferences and outreach they surmount cultural barriers and foster a deeper and more meaningful sense of global possibility. My time in AIESEC brought tremendous growth for me, and through it I saw how so many of our problems and challenges, as well as our blessings and strengths, are universal for people around the globe. It is a special fellowship, one of purpose and vision, and proof of its sustained value can be found in the fact that the rst class 50 years ago had less than 100 students enrolled in it and now AIESEC is in almost 100 countries. I will always be grateful for what I learned both through the people who ran the programs and my peers in them.
