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!

Happuna! AIESECness!

Visit to ANTALYA – “heaven on earth”

leave a comment »

Antalya- it was a dream destination for me in my periodical Turkish tours. I had been to Istanbul, Ankara, Eskisehir and just needed to see Antalya in person and not in the airplane magazines. When I got the news that we were going to be lodging at the Le Chateau De Prestige Hotel in Antalya, I don’t know which made me more excited the hotel or the city in which the hotel was.

In a nutshell, It was an amazing experience, the people, the food – hmmm! you don’t want me to get started with the food; the activities, the chats and roll-calls, the LC simulations, the parties, the suspense, the nose-grazing and stirring, the songs, the fame, the gossip, the smash box, the HEPSI
Did come back with the flu (not the swine flu), was in bed for the weekend and now up and running with exams around the corner, but if there is one thing I got from my trip to Antalya, it’s that…….. I’d have to get back to you on that.
Happuna! Burcuseniness!

The AIESEC Journey…..

leave a comment »

People say thing like, “Best day ever!” or “Best food ever!” and I just sigh ‘cos I didn’t believe it was possible to have the best thing ever instantenously. Well I was proven wrong @ the 7th EastMed AIESEC Local Congress, last weekend. It was the BEST WEEKEND EVER!

A 3rd attempt @ joining the AIESEC Family sure was worth it and I have to admit that I learned more than I was hoping to. My expectations were met and over-passed. Thanks to the OC and Members who kept pushing and keeping me in check. I do know the path that lies ahead is a wonderful one. Only wish I had started a little earlier. 

Made a lot of new friends, cultural exchange was obviously starring at me in the face, and I got the opportunity to do what I loved the most – performing music to a happy audience. I sure hoped time slowed down but then, does it? 

Looking forward to ATEMCO – in December @ Izmir. Turkey. I got a feeling it’s going to be awesome. I do pray it falls on a good time of the semester though. So I took my first step in the journey of a thousand miles. All I can hope for is to get to my desired destination.

Happuna! AIESECness!
