My Name is Lucia Yuriko, I am Member Committee Vice President (MCVP) Outgoing Global Exchange 20/21 of AIESEC in Indonesia. My journey at AIESEC began in 2016, Join AIESEC as Staff Incoming Global Volunteer (IGV), then became Team Leader of Incoming Global Volunteer and Local Committee Vice President Outgoing Global Talent (OGT). Until now, she is the MCVP of OGX AIESEC in Indonesia.
Reason to Join AIESEC
“Ever since I was in Senior High School, I’ve known AIESEC and signed up to be a host family.”
When entering the lecture period, Luci joined AIESEC UPN Veteran Yogyakarta (UPNVY). She entered AIESEC because she likes projects that are handled by young people and have a real impact on society. AIESEC is a way to realize and develop young people to become good leaders.
Many young people are passionate about big changes. The changes will always starts with small things to make those happen. Luci likes to be surrounded by passionate and motivated people. These people will influence us to continue to grow in many ways because of the many supporting systems for us to continue to advance and develop.
Valuable Experience at AIESEC
Before becoming Vice President of Outgoing Global Talent AIESEC UPNVY, She was downgraded to become a Talent Management Staff due to problems at work. Luci still wants to continue at AIESEC and she dared to go forward to become the Vice President. She wants to explore the world of work, and inspire friends to seek experience outside of college.
From February 2019 to January 2020, she had experience dealing directly with AIESEC Products and meeting with stakeholders and customers. OGT at AIESEC in UPNVY is the second year and still has one predecessor (alumnae). She started the term full of confusion and fear because the team members had no experience in OGT because the former only had a manager, and no one continued. However, She and Team did not give up and kept doing something new to be able to develop OGT.
With the support of other people and the team, Luci and the team were able to realize more than 10 Goals. Her team also have high growth compared to other. In addition, OGT AIESEC in UPNVY also received several awards from the conference. Luci shapes her character and accomplish many things despite her confusion during her AIESEC Journey.
Memorable Moment at AIESEC
The most memorable thing for her is, all the Exchange Participants were very close and always on the phone at all times. They always share their experiences during and after the internship. After running the internship, Exchange Participants immediately get a Full-Time Employer, a good Workplace in the company, and a good Portfolio. In addition, there are those who can start their own business and trusted to be managers in the company because of their good work quality. In fact, all Exchange Participants are Fresh Graduates but they can show their success through the efforts they have put in so far. We are still in touch with each other, most happy when someone is grateful for the impact that has been given by the OGT program.
Becoming one of OGT members helps them being more professional and find their own passion. The first new organizational development system must start from small steps first, so you can’t have a big investment even though you have big goals. Everything must start from small things, then it will become bigger. But remember, always maintain and continuously develop new innovations.
