We are able to meet great young leaders from different universities. We are very fortunate to hear motivation, inspirational talk and encouragement from the speakers like Mr. Bernard Caasi of Unleash Leadership Training Group, Ms. Ada Cueresma of Voice Care Philippines, Mr. Jude Cuntapay, Ms. April Cuenca founder of Fliptrip.ph, Actress and Host Ms. Stephanie Sol, Founder of Chalre Associates Ms. Rebecca Bustamante-Mills, AIESEC Exhange Student Mr. Mikko Argonza and The Outstanding Filipino of Year 2014 Mr. Francis J. Kong.
We are able to clarify our purpose in life. As youth it is actually difficult to identify what is your purpose but when you found out that associations and organization like AIESEC that is willing to guide you through out the way. Finding out what is your reason to live, become easy. For AIESEC of our University, Polytechnic University of the Philippines enhorabuena y gracias! #IskolarAko
