My Travel Story

by: Ioana Călin Start Date: Feb 10, 2014 - End Date: Mar 6, 2014
After 7 months of looking for an experience that would suit me the best, I now have the chance to live my dream for the next 6 months in Medellin, Colombia, through my first international internship with AIESEC.

I’m Ioana from Iaşi, Romania. During my 4 years of experience in the Communication area I got the chance to meet and even work with great entrepreneurs in my city. This helped me develop an entrepreneurial mindset and made me wish to have my own business in the near future. But before I get there I want to do my best in supporting young entrepreneurs and even learn more about this adventure along the way. The next 6 months in Medellin will allow me to bring my contribution to the Colombian entrepreneurship and economy, helping Colombians to bring their dreams to reality.

I spent the last 7 months searching for the best internship for me through the International Internships Program ran by the youth NGO AIESEC.
I recently found out I’ve been selected for a great internship position in Medellin, Columbia. I will design and deliver a fundraising campaign for a company that helps Colombians start their own business.

I really want to thank you for any donation you can make, so I have prepared some goodies for you to enjoy for every donation. I fully appreciate any donation and share of this campaign! 

Also, I will document my entire experience in Medellin both in Romanian and English on my personal blog, under the South-American Journal category. You can find the link in the Online information section. I'd be glad to have you there as well. :-)
