"... The main purpose of my trip to Russia was to participate in AIESEC Russia's National Congress. Those University students are attempting to create a successful student exchange program; meanwhile they are changing the face of a nation even if they do not fully realize it.
The student movement in Russia is in its infancy when compared to the student movements in western nations. In many universities AIESEC is the first student group ever. The precedents that they set will define how students are viewed and how students interact with the decision makers in their universities, in their cities, in their country.
As Russia struggles to reinvent itself I see those students, such as the ones I spent my time with as one of the architects of the new Russia. It seems a forbidding task to me, but the resolve of these people to allows me little room to doubt that they will succeed.
Being in Russia or any different nation forces you to reevaluate the world, it makes you look at the world from a different perspective, and that's probably not such a bad thing..."
