AIESEC is the largest youth-run organization in the world. Present in 124 countries and territories, AIESEC has enabled young people to live life-changing experiences. They are a global network of young leaders who strive to better themselves and the communities around them.
In Romania, AIESEC is present in 14 cities around the country and has a history of 25 years of activating leadership among young people by providing international volunteering and professional internships.
The most of the members are students between 18 and 23 years old. Its members are interested in world issues, leadership and management. They are the next generation of young leaders and are eager to discover, to help others and to bring a positive impact in the society, but the lack of money usually stop them.

I’m a long-distance runner since 2010. I started this sport during my exchange year in Germany and since then I continue my passion.
I’m proud finisher of 24 Marathons, 6 Half-Marathons and many small races. For me, the marathon is the perfect frame to test my limits and to get out of my comfort zone. I know that each race will change my life’s perspective and will contribute to who I am, what matters to me and what am I able to do in order to fulfill my dreams.
This fundraising is very important to me from 2 different perspective:
1. I’m an Alumnus of AIESEC in Romania (I have been a volunteer for 4 and a half years). After spending so much time in this organization and constantly receiving help from other people, I truly believe that it’s time to give something back to the future generation and to the organization.
2. I had the chance to go in an AIESEC internship in Lucerne, Switzerland. Living abroad and taking advantage of this experience, I totally understand the impact of the experience on the personal and professional level. I want to help other AIESEC members, and together with my soul organization to provide this kind of experience.
Unfortunately – not every student from Romania can cover these costs. So – it's time to take actions!
