Lived Experience - Puerto Rico

The final edition of the International Lived Experience Series (for now...)

Puerto Rico was el Gato, el gato manana!  This is the limitation of my spanish.

Lived Experiences - Czech Republic

During my time in Kenya, I was highly encouraged to attend a conference called "EuroCo" during midterms in October. This 7 day conference is reserved for Local Committee President's, and led by highly engaged AIESEC country presidents. Rather than just squeeze in for the 7 day conference, I went for 13 days, and attended the AIESEC Prague (praha) local committee induction conference.

 No midterm could provide as valuable a learning experience, ever.


(again, if the video says error, youtube fail, just adjust the resolution)

 I swear I didn't just drink beer and dance the whole time I was in Czech. Though it was very common.

Lived Experience - Kenya

International Congress: 9 days, 20 hours sleep, 100 countries, 600 students. Your brain and body's capacity to keep up with the environment is challenged, and on top of that, Africa Challenged.

I would like to point out that "Maple Syrup Antics" were endorsed strongly, perhaps even Africa Challenged.

Lived Experience - Oman

After finishing up the India adventure, I found myself drawn to stop over in Oman. If India is a speedboat, Oman was a canoe, the lifestyle was very relaxed.
 (if the video shows an error, try in a 480 p rather than 360 p)

 6 months before landing in Oman, I honestly knew "I will probably never go to Oman". Have you ever doubted a country before?

 Life lesson: There are two paths, what you plan and what you do.

Lived Experiences - India

There is so much more to travelling than getting from point A to point B. There is so much more to working abroad than the 9 - 5 (or 8-2). India was an adventure, here are some of the little moments that made it unforgettable.

For all those heading to India, particularly Sarah Hummel and Chungsoon Haw, I wish you the best adventure you can find.
