Mentorship Experience

I am participating in a mentorship program as a mentee in YWiB SFU, and I went to the orientation of mentorship this Friday to meet other mentees and mentors.

One thing I learn from mentorship is that the mentee should have specific goals that he/she wants to accomplish in mind and mentor will be the one that is guiding the mentee to accomplish those goals. Goals should be set in the first meeting.

Mentee should be the one that is maintaining the relationship. In a mentee-mentor relationship, not only the mentee will learn and benefit, but so will the mentor.

Another interesting thing is that in a statistic report, it shows that female mentor tends to be more like a teacher, and male mentor tends to be more like friend. For example, female mentors would give advise to their mentees and try to help them to accomplish their goals, but male mentors will open theirĀ  network to their mentees.

People that are or are thinking of participating in AIESEC Mentorship Program could take these comments in mind šŸ™‚



AIESEC is appearing on a Taiwanese TV show called “University Student Yet?”

The show is about a group of university students discussingĀ  their university life. One of the topic they discussed beforeĀ  was where can you find cheap and delicious food around universities in Taiwan.

In this episode, they discuss about different clubs in universities.

At the beginning of the show, the students guessed about what club Bill Clinton has joined before. One of them guessed “President Development Club”.

The name of the student that was presenting AIESEC is Zhen Yu.

When Zhen Yu announced “AIESEC,” the host thought it was “I sick.”

Zhen Yu introduced AIESEC as the biggest student-run organization in the world that operates in 110 countries. The goal of AIESEC is to develop student’s skills before they entering into the work force and therefore have positive impact on society. Also, he includes the International feature of AIESEC club by introducing the National Conference that was held in Taiwan.

Zhen Yu shared his personal experience of going to Africa to volunteer for two and a half month through AIESEC. He went there to promote the prevention of AIDS.

Zhen Yu then introduces an interesting fact about the International “cheer” that all AIESEC students do, which is if someone says “Hey AIESEC” and you have to reply “What’s Up”

He said that if you said “Hey AIESEC” on the airplane, there might be people from AIESEC replying you “What’s Up”
