This is a case study of Hiral :-
It is almost 3 months now that I am back to Vadodara with my family, after having spent a memorable stay of 4 months in the city of Kyoto-Japan. I was in Japan for a three and a half month’s internship through AIESEC as a kindergarten teacher in Kyoto-Japan. I chose Japan out of my love and affinity of the country from my first visit in the year 2000. First thing that happens in the internship is: you actually experience what the country is all about, things you had just heard before. Though I had been to Japan earlier, it was like a whole new world this time. My interaction initially was only with the AIESECers, who helped me for few days so that i could get acquainted and comfortable with the place which was miles away from home.
Later i came in contact and worked with the other interns from all around the world. Though i was in Japan, i learnt equally as much about Poland, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Greece and others. I had to deal with people from world over and learn to adjust with different personalities, their culture, thinking, and ways of life. Even in my own country i could not interact with new people as i did with these foreign people, and amazingly there was so much more i had in common with these people than lots of my own friends. My shyness and lack of confidence was wiped out like it was never there. What else i learnt was responsibility. Being here i realized how much i had been pampered back home, I learnt to solve problems, take decisions, manage everything from money, travel, job to a lot more all by myself.
How it all helps me now is, the mention of the internship on my CV, increases my chances of being preferred into jobs i now apply. I now have more open a mind from ideas from world over which also helps me in my daily jobs. I am now a different person, more confident, culturally sensitive, knowledge, responsible and thus matured. It was like a small break i took from my monotonous routine life, to explore my deepest potential and eradicate all my draw backs. And not to forget i made the best of friends, and had the best times of life with them.And i have contacts in all the continents, if ever required. AIESEC came in like my god fairy, and turned my life into a happy ever after.
