Somewhere in the SUN!

Merhaba! ☺ I am Farida and I would like to talk to you about my AIESEC internship story in Antalya, Turkey. Yes, Antalya! A place somewhere in the SUN <3

The project that I was accepted , was called “Myself My World” where I was teaching English to Turkish high school students, during the weekdays from 10.00 a.m. till 5 p.m. I met so many people there and make a great friendship with people among students and interns. You may have doubts towards what kind of cultural diversity I felt in Turkey. I will answer that for me the real DIVERSITY was meeting people from more than 20 cultures in one place. Even you are from 5 different continents of the world, you have the common interests and common things that you want to do in your life. Our goal in Antalya also was the same to give opportunity to someone the access to the world, to make them speak in international language, to broaden their horizons by sharing our cultures with them.

Life with “People Team”

After spending a year in the USA I witnessed that being a part of an exchange program is probably the best thing that one could ever experience in his or her existence. Every single step that is taken during that period makes us more easy-going, mature and tolerant.

In 2015, I noticed that it had been exactly three years since I was stuck in my motherland without letting any changes in my life. I do not want to be misunderstood: I certainly adore every bit of Azerbaijan and it is definitely worth living in Baku. Anyhow, how about “A little party never killed nobody” slogan?

Here is how it all starts: Even though I am not an AIESEC, I have many friends working and participating in it. Thus it was quite normal to see the posts about Global Citizen on social networks all the time. After a long examination of the application procedure I decided to try my chance. Finding a suitable project and trying to get accepted was not that easy: I remember receiving rejections from 6 projects in Poland, to which I am grateful, otherwise I would never be able to understand the enjoyment of volunteering in Hungary. I was assigned to teach English to the children aged between 7 and 17 years old.
