‘Hi everyone, today I feel like writing to all of you.
Today is a special day for me, because when I came back from Indonesia, I thought I was among the priveliged kids who could afford travelling. Not so long ago, I made a personal goal with myself to impress my parents by giving all the money back from part time job (content writing) during university.
Today I have paid the last installment and IDK, I felt like sharing this news with all of you. Because I feel happy and now I have made some other goals.
Thank you for being a part of my life. You all helped build me.’
Upon posting this paragraph in our private group of my Aiesec friends, I received a lot of support. Right now, my face is smiling but only I know how rough my past 10 days have been. I have been working like hell, writing almost 8 articles per day. (One day I even touched the mark of 12 or 13, I don’t remember) but that doesn’t matter now. What matters is my true grit! I also learnt that low payrates don’t matter if you are consistent. You can always take more work to cover your margins.
And now, I would like to face my direction of life towards my other life goals. One thing is for sure: AIESEC will forever be a part of me.
