University of the Philippines proudly presents the AIESEC Inspire Summit: A Youth Volunteerism Bridge.
This one day event is a project based on exchange (PBoX) of the Global Community Development Program (GCDP) of AIESEC University of the Philippines, Diliman. It aims to ignite the passion of the Filipinos to help others in need by inspiring and allowing young people to explore and develop their potential, creating a positive impact in society by paving a way for them to be able to work with non-government organizations (NGO). I was able to meet new friends all the way from Indonesia, Taiwan and Russia!
Local speakers with admirable accomplishments were also invited to share their stories and causes as they inspire the audience to step up and do the same, help, volunteer, in making a change. Moreover, the most important thing I brought home with me is what speaker CHET, a student global leader explained.
When I asked, "What gives you the courage to speak up and think of others before yourself?" He replied, "My goal. Because through that goal, you will acquire what I call three C's. CLEAR, CONCISE and CONNECT. When your goal is clear and concise, nothing can stop you from connecting. And whatever happens, you gotta protect that GOAL of yours. That no matter what anybody else says or does against it, don't mind them and continue with what you are doing."
