Ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of traveling the world. While I was studying accounting and finance at the University of Illinois, I became increasingly involved with AIESEC, a leadership development platform and one the largest student run organizations on the planet. After completing an internship in Kenya that changed my life, I wanted to make it easier for other people in my university to have access to such rich experiences. I jumpstarted our exchange participant program and helped send more than 50 people on internships abroad during college. I also completed 2 internships myself (Kenya and Oman) and was a sought after speaker at numerous AIESEC conferences around the USA. Moreso though, being part of AIESEC fundamentally changed the way I experienced the world.
