25 April 2016 - 1:11 pm The Social Entrepreneur – it’s a change of lifestyle, not of status

After delving a bit into the concept of social entrepreneurship, I have learned one mesmerising fact: it makes the world bigger and smaller at the same time.

25 August 2015 - 2:44 pm The desire to create profit…

“Life is an act of consumption. To live is to consume. And the human beings on your planet are merely resource waiting to be converted into capital. And this entire enterprise is just a small part in a vast and beautiful machine defined by evolution, desire to a simple purpose… to create profit.” (Balem Abrasax, Jupiter Ascending)

As well as being an intern here at USE, I am Vice President Talent Management of AIESEC Sheffield. I know it sounds like a boring mouthful but I promise it’s a whole load of fun and being a part of AIESEC has been such a positive influence in my life!

8 November 2011 - 12:03 pm Sheffield Introductory Conference

It has been almost exactly three months since I finished my term as the President of AIESEC Sheffield. It is said in AIESEC that whatever work is done by the Executive Board in a year, the results for that are seen in the year after, this is because of the structure of AIESEC’s leadership programme. I must say it makes me incredibly proud to see AIESEC Sheffield organise Sheffield Introductory Conference or SIC this year. The term and the idea was coined by my team last year and its really good to see it actually happening so effectively.

9 May 2011 - 10:19 am AIESEC Sheffield elections: See it, Believe it, Achieve it!

So, the big day came! It was the 25th of March and a new committee of AIESEC Sheffield was elected. It took us five hours of speeches and question and answer sessions, which was nerve wrecking for the candidates, yet very inspiring for AIESEC Sheffield members.
