Experience Stories

  • - Jan Wai, NTU  Exchange to Taiwan

    Through this volunteering project and living abroad alone for the first time, I have many opportunities in developing my independence and being able to multi-task. Furthermore, I got the chance to interact with people from different backgrounds and cultures, enhancing my cross-cultural experience. By sharing my own culture, the children get to know and see the world through my sharings. I felt I have bring them to a country outside of Taiwan! Other than being taught to see things from different perspectives, the children are now more motivated to pursue what they are interested in.

  • - Nathaniel, NTU  Exchange to Taiwan

    My overall experience in Taiwan is very satisfying. They put in efforts to make me feel comfortable there by arranging meet up sessions with other AIESECers and even surprising me for my birthday! The school which I volunteered in also helped to ensure that I was adapting during my internship period there. I learnt more about myself more during the project and being more independent since I was alone and knew no one before. I also learnt how to communicate with people of different ages, since most of the time I interact with kids and the teachers who are older than me. It was a very enriching and unique experience that we won’t get from other programs in university.

  • - Myo Myo, NTU  Exchange to Poland

    I taught English and Culture at three schools, which were all different in so many ways. In some, I was conducting English practice sessions, while in others the school wanted toemphasise on an exchange of culture and interactions such that Polish kids learn to embrace new cultures. I have never felt so much life in my everyday life before. I received so much warmth and love from my host parents and siblings and they made it a must to let me try every single new Polish dish, visit castles and secret getaway places while they listened intently whenever I shared stories of myself. I am sure we all were mutually grateful to have had each other asfamily at that point in our lives.
