Why this conference is important to me
Firstly, it is a competitive environment to be a delegate and a representative of your country given that this is the biggest conference in our organization. I have been fortunately accepted to be a delegate and a representative of the Philippines. Each country is only allowed to send 8 delegates in this conference.
It is definitely a once in a lifetime experience to represent my country, my university, to have different meaningful and insightful conversations with delegates from all over the world, to share my opinions with the world, to be able to have a chance to network with different global leaders in the non-corporae and corporate world, and to foster better international relations with them. Moreover, only AIESECers who holds the position of President or higher (the national team or the international team) are eligible to attend this conference. Being the president of my university chapter this year, I really do want to bring back this experience to my members and inspire them to keep striving for the peace of fulfillment of humankind's potential and relevant youth leadership.
