What made you join?
I was looking for an international volunteering experience, then when I found JCI I was impressed by the package of development opportunities it provides. Now after 7 years in JCI I can easily say that I have become a different person than the one I was before joining JCI.

What is the most interesting JCI event you’ve been to and why?
Oh difficult to tell, there is a lot! OK, I will say 2010 JCI Africa and the Middle East Conference in Nigeria. It was my first time in Africa and I wasn’t expecting that I will visit Nigeria in my life but this is an example to where JCI could take you. I had amazing 12 days there and I made loads of friends from around Africa.

Had JCI presented any unusual/interesting opportunities?
JCI is meeting my International passion. I have friend from all around the world now. Whenever I visit any country I have friends to meet and show me around.
