1 Emre Kurtulan I lived in India for 2 months through IAESTE. It meant different dishes, different places, different people, different weather, unforgettable monsoon rains and locusts. I've been thousands of miles from my house, but it's never been a problem because Indians are really friendly and hospitable people. I would like to thank all the JECRC family for welcoming me. I learned a lot of new information and methods in my internship. My supervisor also allowed me to be original while she was directing me. After all, I can say that my self-confidence has increased. In short, this experience has changed me. And that was in good direction. Now I'm at home and there's a piece from India in my heart. Emre Kurtulan, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Ege University, Izmir, TURKEY
2 Eoghan For anyone that wants to travel abroad for an internship and experience a different culture I could not recommend India enough. It really is a different world. It's very hard for me to describe my time here in India. If someone asked me how my summer was I really don't know how I would answer. It is as breath-taking as it is frustrating, in the beginning you'll feel completely lost but after a while you will adapt, realise that you just have to accept this wildly different culture and integrate as much as you can. Once you realise and accept that a 4 hour train delay is perfectly normal, and that locals will continuously ask you for selfies, and that you should never pay more than half of the asking price for anything at the markets, and all of the other things that seem so bizarre to foreigners but completely normal for Indians, you will begin to really notice the truly amazing side of India. People are so inherently friendly; they are always so happy to help you out and will do as much as they can to make you feel as comfortable as possible. There are so many phenomenal sights to see, from something as obvious as going to see the Taj Mahal, to just sitting and watching the sunset with some friends at Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur, there really is an endless amount of time you could spend here and still not see everything worth seeing. I could not be more grateful for everything provided to me here by the IAESTE local committee at JECRC University, without you guys this experience wouldn't have been possible and I will never forget everything I learned here. During my time here I met and became friends with interns from over 15 different countries and experiencing so many different cultures coming together in one place that was so alien to every one of us was such an invaluable experience in itself. From Punjabi dancing to Despacito with complete strangers in a nightclub in the city centre of Jaipur to watching bodies being burned on the banks of the Ganges in Varanasi and everything in between, India really is the craziest, most diverse, most bizarre and most beautiful country I have ever visited. If you ever get the opportunity, don't think about it, just go, you definitely will not regret it.
3 Yabkwa Rimamchika India is one country I know and admire for its unparalleled uniqueness. It’s very different here from every other place in the world I've been to or read about. I didn't have so much difficulty blending with the unique Indian lifestyle though because I'm Nigerian, Nigerian’s are known for their ability to blend and adapt anywhere but still maintaining their originality. My internship at JECRC UNIVERSITY through IAESTE was worthwhile and the proof of this was in my decision to extend my internship duration. The summary of my experience is that I came, I learnt and now I'm leaving back to my country as a better person. Thank you IAESTE for the opportunity, thank you JECRC University for hosting me. To all interns and SROs know that I'll miss you??. God bless you all! Yabkwa Rimamchika Israel, information and communication engineering, Covenant University, Ota - Nigeria.
4 Tanvi Nath This summer, I had the opportunity to intern at ETCBASE YAZILIM, in the city of dreams, ÏSTANBUL, Turkey. The company I worked for offered me great technical experience in a professional environment. Along with this, I got a chance to travel to many places and embrace the culture of Turkey. Meeting people from around the globe itself drafts amazing memories which are to be cherished for a lifetime. The local committee of Turkey was really welcoming and I enjoyed this summer to the fullest. I would like to thank IAESTE LC JECRC for this amazing opportunity.
5 Gautam Poddar The experience that I had during my internship in Al-Farabi KAZNU, Almaty was just prodigious. The development this country has achieved will just leave you stupefied. The Mountains and the people of Kazakh will never leave you alone. My stay in Kazakh was never only about my internship work but to share my day with a whole lot of people from different countries and to feel and undergo the motto of IAESTE " Work, Experience, Discover". Thanks to Al-Farabi Kazakh National University and IAESTE LC JECRC for providing me with such a great opportunity to work. Gautam Intern at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, Almaty, Kazakhstan
6 Mohit Kumawat As the motto goes, "Work, Experience, Discover", it won't be an exaggeration to say that IAESTE provides you with even more. The experience I had during my internship in Vietnam was stupendous. Nature really does speak for the beauty of this country. The place is full of adventures with its traditions and culture kept alive by the Vietnamese people. I express my gratitude to the Thai Nguyen University of Technology for providing me with a workplace to carry out my research. I also thank IAESTE for providing me with an opportunity to work along with foreign colleagues and discover this part of the world. -Mohit Kumawat Intern at Thai Nguyen University of Technology, Vietnam
7 Purvi Shrivastava “My summer internship in Poland taught me everything I ever dreamed of. IAESTE gave me an opportunity to travel, learn and explore at the same time. The hidden wanderer in me came out during these 2 months of my summer internship. I am fortunate enough and cannot ask for more from IAESTE.” -Purvi Shrivastava, Intern at University of Lodz, Department of Molecular Genetics, Poland
8 Roberto My internship here at JECRC has possibly been one of the most intense time of my life. Constantly being exposed to a foreign culture, focussing on my demanding but very exciting project work during the week and leaving for mind blowing trips to faraway places every weekend, there wasn’t much time to take rest. Not only because of that reason, I am so thankful to all IAESTE SROs and my supervisor for solving every single problem related to my stay or my work with greatest compassion, making my campus life very enjoyable. I’m also very grateful to all the other interns I had the pleasure to meet here. Getting to know and being surrounded by so many interesting and lovely personalities from all over the world has been a unique experience for me, which has definitely changed my view of life in some aspects. “The quicker you are in attaching labels to things, situations or people, the more lifeless your reality becomes.” – Eckhart Tolle Remember that line whenever you start your IAESTE experience in a distant country, for your mind might tell you to turn around and take the next flight back home as soon as you arrive. Cultures can differ fundamentally in almost every aspect, but none of them is better or worse than another. India, for example, is just crazy. It’s hard to find any similarity to my home country – it’s a whole new world. But don’t be afraid of that, rather than judging it, just experience it! Nowhere else in the world can you find such a dense diversity of colours, smells, foods, people and much more. So, no matter what the country you choose for your stay will be like: See its beauty, become aware of it, observe it, feel it, cherish it. Dare to step out of your comfort zone and experience an internship that will not only impel your career, but also broaden your horizon. #positivevibesonly -Roberto, Austira
9 Sara Bene When I first applied for an internship with IAESTE, I had no idea I would end up coming to India, but now I wouldn't trade the experience for anything else. India is unlike any place that I've been before, and in truth, living there was challenging sometimes, but the good things outweigh the bad ones: I visited beautiful places I never thought I would or I didn't even know existed, and, maybe most importantly, I met wonderful people from all over the world to share the adventure with. During the two months I spent in the country I learned a lot about Indian culture and it made me think differently about some aspects of my life at home as well. It was a life changing adventure and I will always be grateful that I had the opportunity to experience it. Sara Bene, Hungary
10 Jasmin A big thanks to the IAESTE members of LC JECRC, who guided me not only with IAESTE related subjects (Registration-hostel-1st day of work), but also with any personal requests and even when I was feeling sick. Being away from home can be sometimes frightening and not being in the familiar environment can make oneself feel lonely sometimes, but during my stay here, due to the members and interns I never felt frightened, neither alone. On the contrary, I felt free to sense India as it is, without worries on my mind. And India is amazing! I love being here a lot. I now understand why everyone wants to travel to India. It's a whole new world (Ha-ha, Jasmin saying this Quote in Aladdin- actually a bad joke, but I don't care!:p )So me, with such big diversity so near to each other. It is very hard to describe India, you have to come here and feel it yourself.<3 I am very grateful for meeting such cool people, the interns and the members were all so nice and it was always fun spending time with you guys. Unfortunately I had the honour to stay for only one month. But, I believe, that you always see each other at least 2x in life- At least I hope so. Thank you for everything! Hugs, Jasmin, Austria
11 Simona India is an amazing country and it will definitely bring you to your limits. You will laugh and cry at the same time and you find yourself nearly everyday in a situation where you have the feeling that you can't believe your eyes. I learned a lot about myself in the 8 weeks. I have been here and learned a lot about the culture. Because of all the wonderful amazing trips with a lot of breathtaking moments I will never forget and because of the SROs we were able to really immerge into the culture and the life of India. I appreciate every single experience I lived through- the good and the bad- and I don't want to miss a single one of them. A big THANK YOU! to all the SROs showing us how to successfully survive India and not to be tricked by all the sellers at the market. I would always do it again and recommend it to all my friends. -Simona, Germany
