Hello AIESEC Turkey; This is Nubi from AIESEC 9ja!

Making a mind-call from the @Lagos: Local Training Seminar to @East Med

I came into Nigeria ending of June for my summer internship which was required for graduation, only to meet a  LR-AIESEC rush which has been keeping me in high-spirited since then. First AIESECer I met happens to be the current Communication manager (NST-IM Crew 10100) – Olumide. He invited me to an entrepreneur-seminar. Fortunately for me in attendance was the MCP – Abraham Iyiola and the MCVP-ER – Jean Suhas.  As if it was not enough, I met with the rest of the MC-Crew and Alumni, that same night. at an hang-out.

Coming down to the local level – AIESEC Lagos, I went to caravan and the first person I’d see was the LCP – TomLord, and then the LCVPs. Haba! Too many LRs. Where are the members? I was then na to work with the LCVPTM – Notey, the TMD – Medex Deyanz; as it was recruitment time for the LC, and before I knew it, I was on the OC team and then FACI team for the Local Training Seminar (which for the first time was done in an off-university location: Snake Island).

Mehn! My @XP just went into another gear. It was an amazing XP for me, meeting other FACIs: LCP (Ife) – Dapo, LCVP-X (Ife) – Gbemi, Interns from Austria and Greece – Pamela and Nikos respectively, e.t.c. I saw myself in the new recruit, and it was really fulfilling having to share my XP and knowledge with them, as well as gain from the Top-Talents in the house too.Induction and trainings were awesome too, and I got my first 2 mentees – who I’m mentoring virtually now.

Yay! I was also at the NTS – the AIESEC Nigeria National Training Seminar in Abeokuta (Otta). Meeting with people like Odunowo Tobi – Chair of the Conference, as well as LRs from all over the country, and members alike. Reminded me of delegate-XP as a newbie at – ATEMCO (AIESEC Turkey Educational and Motivational Congress) 2009, which I considered the final rite-of-passage into the AIESEC cultural society. So I heard AIESEC Nigeria needed an NST team, and what did I do?
Thanks for the likes of Abayomi Ogundipe – MCVPICX and Elema David – AIVP Country Development, who inspired me, I applied as a virtual member of the NST-IM Crew as the creative director, and did get the gig or should I say opportunity to bring something to the table. The summer quickly came to an end, and my last place of visit was the MC-Office to bid the AIESEC MC Team (including the NST colleagues) farewell.

To tell the truth, those 3 months in AIESEC Lagos (Nigeria) were the prime of my XP in @! Perhaps, the reason I look forward to applying for MCVP for 1112 Term. Until then I am currently trying my best in creating the Nigeria-Turkey connection as regards project-based exchanges.



Hello ADA! This is Nubi from Lagos, Nigeria!

W I S D O M | The Shoe Tale

leave a comment »

Yaaay! Today’s is my dad’s birthday and it was definitely an awesome start of the day, as  he went jogging. How cool is it to say your dad went jogging? We then sat together for devotion and he shared how happy he was ‘cos he just got a phone call from his mom (my grandma) who told him he was actually born on a Tuesday. Super! He also shared that all of his kids (including me) were all leaders of some sought as a trend of being existed in the family. Well, I know W I S D O M is not yet mentioned in this post, but here’s a story my dad shared too:

A man walked into a shoe store to get himself a pair of shoes. He looked at the shelf and went shoe-surfing for a couple of minutes, having things like: color, shape, style, compatibility, texture, and other factors on his mind. He then finally settled for a particular pair and asked the shoe attendant to help bring it down. Well it was quite high up the shelf, so it called for a fuss, as it took about twenty minutes for a joint effort of the store’s two attendant to get the shoes down.


The man then tried it on and it didn’t fit. The first store attendant said – “Your legs are too big for the shoe“, and the man looked disgusted. In haste the second store attendant said – “I just think the shoes are too small for your legs“. The man eased up and nodded in agreement and asked for another pair of shoes.

They both said the same thing, but in different context. It took wisdom for the latter to make known the obvious. U dig.

Happuna! Shoelessness!

The Ladybird and The Fly

leave a comment »

This happened a few weeks ago, as I walked to an exam. I did sleep late the night before and was still feeling grumpy when I walked out of bed towards the exam hall. I then noticed I had set out a little earlier than usual and had more time to cover the usual 8-minute walk.

As I was about getting to my department(exam center), first came the ladybird in all of her (assuming it’s a she) beauty, with her wings shinny under the sun, but then I found myself crushing it with the sole of my feet. Well, I didn’t think much of it. Then came the fly crawling (I think it was injured): all tattered and drab, but I found myself excusing it, as I walked past it.

A few walks away, I asked myself: “Why did I crush the beautiful ladybird, and leave the tattered fly?”
