A long-expected project "World Without Borders" has finally started in Odessa! We welcome our interns and hope they will like our city and their time in it! This project is very special and important. Its aim is to familiarize Ukrainian schoolchildren with cultures and traditions of other countries, which are considered to be so far away…But, we are happy to make them a little bit closer for our students!

Please, welcome intern from China – Sherry Zhang! It was very nice of her to share her emotions and impressions from the project with us! So, enjoy!

"Ater so many problems, finally I arrived in Odessa, saw my OCP and my teammates, they are so nice that met with me at train station. My trip in Odessa began. "World without borders" is a wonderful project, I like these children. When I saw that they are very interested in China's culture, I am very proud and pleased to tell them more about my country. Also i like Odessa's night, there are many stars in the sky and they are bright. I love this city and this country.

As an AIESECer, when I met other interns in Mitco, listen to the familiar music, have the same dance, it is amazing to be an AIESECer, AIESEC makes our world smaller. It gives us the opportunity to meet and work with people from other countries. I treasure this chance and hope there is something fantastic waiting for me."

Interns from Dnepropetrovsk visited Odessa!

Today in AIESEC Odessa and Odessa came very wonderful interns from Ukrainian city Dnepropetrovsk. This is representative of countries such as Brazil and China.

Welcome to Odessa!

So, our wonderful tour began with a visit to the Odessa Museum of Western and Oriental art. Well, really, who would not have been pleased to come to Ukrianu and enjoy the historic achievement of the country. The next site tours was the central street of the city Deribasivska. Suddenly one of the Chinese trainees bit behind our small tour group. But when we looked back to her call, she was cute was a citizen of Ukraine and spoke in Chinese. So not only is our Odessa-large village, and the whole world. A little hungry, we went to dinner at a restaurant of Ukrainian cuisine Puzata Hata. Funny name:) After lunch we continue walking around the city. Tomorrow, girls are going to travel farther across the country, and the next point of arrival, the city of Mariupol.

We sincerely wish them good luck and a lot of new and enjoyable experience!

Thank you for helping kids!!!

More recently, completed the first draft in 2011 AIESEC in Odessa, entitled "Children Path" (project leader: Svetlana Tanchik). The project was associated exclusively with children who need the help the outside world. Specifically, assistance was provided to children from boarding schools, including those that are deaf and able to communicate using the language of speech, as well as children with low vision. In order to prove themselves and benefit society as well as make new acquaintances in Ukraine, in the project "Children Path" participated the guys from Brazil. The project lasted for almost two months and during that time Ricardo, Bruno, Douglas and Jessica had completely given the favorite business - dancing. They taught the children who have problems with vision and hearing dance.

We want to tell them thank you very much, for what they gave away two months of his life good cause, and helped the children of Odessa to feel part of a larger world!We hope that the guys were satisfied with their work, and his example has shown that it is necessary to help each other, and especially to those who need this help!

Hot Brazil was willing to spend the winter together with Ukraine!

As it turned out, not all Brazilians are prone to sun-van during the Christmas and New Year. Some of them are not even against visiting Ukraine during the winter vacation and enjoy the weather below zero. Sevastopol became the starting point for trainees travel to Odessa. And here is a little sleepy boys from Brazil are already on the Odessa railway station, stand and enjoy the morning freshness of sea air. (I would like to express special thanks to Victoria Mountain, because the guys met at 8.00 am).

First was - a tour of the city, which as always was accompanied by new impressions. Of course, Odessa does not possess the beauty in the winter, especially given the lack of snow in our city, but the attractions have helped to keep the city proud. And as can be seen, the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater came to mind for foreigners to taste. Speaking of taste preferences, we can safely say that Brazilians love sweets and here we are very similar. Who would have thought that the usual Odessa cotton candy will cause so much joy and delight.

Interns, fellows brave and Odessa are ready at any moment to go somewhere else. But as map and compass at hand was not, had to turn now to just such a useful plaque on a column with a detailed and accurate written all the "coming" of the city, at a minimum Ukrainian. Let's hope that the road to Odessa, the Brazilians quickly learned the Russian language and understood everything that was written on the "Iron" guidebook.

We are confident that Odessa was for the guys one of the favorite and memorable towns, despite the fact that they have traveled more than half of our country. And we hope to see them again in our beautiful city.

My internship experienced in Ukraine was amazing

My internship experienced in Ukraine was amazing, 2 months in there is like a priceless experience and beyond of my expectation. I lived in odessa, which is really recommended city to come if you visit ukraine. This is a major port city located on the Black Sea coast and often called the "Pearl of the South" and the fourth largest city in Ukraine. Odessa is the only city in Ukraine which has so many people who live in it and good relations with each other. The city is a mixture of various nations and ethnic groups, including Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Germany, Greek, Jewish, Korean, Moldovans, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, and many others. I also enjoyed walking odessa`s main street, Deribasovskaya street, which looks absolutely georgeous when illuminated at night.
This internship gave a lot of experience that I can’t forgot. I previously had not imagined there are many great lessons will I got from these “life-changing experience”programme. Ranging from learning how to cope with culture shock, learning how to understand and realize of each person's personal character, contemplating and reviewing problems or advantages of ukraine countries that do not belong to my own country “Indonesia”, to know and learn to be grateful from a variety of problems that every person have, to feel how joy foster good relationships and forming friendships with people from different countries. This is the happiest thing, i never imagined before that from different countries whom have different characters and different culture but they can unite, look after each other, appreciate, and form a close relationship like a family. One more thing which i am so proud is when i realize have become the ambassador of the nation in international event and develop a national spirit and in fact what we do brings good effect and could make a good impact for many people.

I am an intern of SKILL MATTER in Odessa ,2009, it is an ET project (about management education for university students) for 2 months.

The most important thing I had learned from this project is "team work"and "negotiation", I am so lucky I had such a great team, we worked together, played together, hang out together, even was drunk together... )))

I had so many owesome memories in the lovely city (people there are so kind and friendly), of course not only happy memories, but also embarrassing , angry, terrible, funny, impressive, crazy memories. All of them happened in this 2 months, just 2 months! but the experience let me feel I am stronger and maturer, really.

I appreciate all the members in Odessa LC, they took care of us, helped us so much and showed us many cool places. I know they really wanted us to enjoy our interships !

THANK YOU every AIESECer I ever met in Odessa!
