HOPE Intern (Vietnam)

| 03 December 2012

Greetings from Vietnam!

I sincerely wish that through our help, Malaysian people will be more concerned about HIV prevention and control.

I’m An Bich Van, a 21-year-old happy-go-lucky girl who has just arrived in Malaysia on 12/11/2012.
Have you ever heard about Hanoi University? Located in Hanoi, Vietnam, it specializes in language studies including English, Japanese, Chinese, French, Russian, Korean, Spanish, Italian etc. I’m currently studying English in Hanoi University. It’s the semester break now over there, so I chose to come to Malaysia for the HOPE Project run by AIESEC in University Putra Malaysia (UPM).

Why Malaysia? First of all, Malaysia is very unique as it is a multicultural country, where you can experience different cultures and lifestyles in just one country. I could make friends with people from all walks of life, work in an international working environment which is very great for me to improve myself. You know what’s my favorite food in Malaysia? It’s Yong Tau Fu & Hua Dan Ho! I’m gonna miss these delicious dishes when I return to Vietnam later :)

My internship here, in Malaysia has been great so far. I want to spread HIV awareness among people in Malaysia. The HOPE project is a great medium for us to educate people about HIV / AIDS. I sincerely wish that through our help, Malaysian people will be more concerned about HIV prevention and control.

Last but not least, I want to thank all of the people who have been very kind to me during my internship here. I will never forget what I’ve experienced here, and I will take all these great memories back to Vietnam. Please do consider coming to Vietnam, as it is a country full of amazing people and yummy food! =D

HOPE Intern (India)

| 29 November 2012

My name is Huzaan Bharucha. I am currently studying in my first year of my Bachelor of Commerce in Mumbai University. I am 17 years old, and I have a younger brother who is 13 years old.

I came to Exchange before joining AIESEC and I made my mind to come Malaysia because I found that it was a very different culture from other Asian Countries. I found that Hope Project was really interesting, and I was enlightened about the problems faced by the people who have AIDS. I think it is very important to educate the younger masses about this disease as it is better to prevent it at an early age.

Malaysia surpassed all my expectations when I saw what it truly was, the people here are very friendly, kind and helpful. I had been on a trip to Penang and had try jet ski at Batu Ferringi , it was really awesome. Laksa and cha koay teow which are Malaysia famous food that I truly delight and my experience here in Malaysia has been wonderful and I got to see Peter Pan (who I initially thought it was the cartoon character but sadly turned out to be a Taiwanese singer which was a big surprise).

HOPE + MIRACLE Intern (Kenya)


Cathy Karanja is a fun Kenyan girl who studies is South Africa and has come to Asia for the very first time.

She has worked with AIESEC for a year as VP OGX and is currently working in the National Support team for AIESEC South Africa. She had done a precious internship in Mauritius in the marine conservation programs being run there.

She chooses to come to Malaysia for her second internship because she is interested in the project management and event planning aspect of the project. Therefore, she had chosen MIRACLE project for her internship in Malaysia.

The MIRACLE project is a project which is concern about the environmental issues. Besides MIRACLE project, she is also joining the HOPE project which is about HIV and AIDS.  She is also passionate about creating awareness of HIV and AIDS.  This is why she will do both the HOPE project and the MIRACLE project in her second internship.

She is expects to develop and brush her organizational and development skills further, and form networks with other interns from around the world. She has only been here for a day, but she loves the culture and food in Malaysia. However, she finds the weather here is too humid and she is afraid of the lightning when raining.

She was attended her first event for the HOPE project on the same night she landed, and got to hear about the AIDS awareness program currently running in UPM such as ‘Night of HOPE’. She even got to meet and attend one of the Taiwanese singer, Peter Pan.  She initially thought that was a cartoon character, but later got to learn is a celebrity super star from Taiwan. What a surprise!!!

HOPE Intern (India)


Hi, I am Behalya Naidu from Hyderabad ,India. I am 19 years old. I am an amicable person. I love to travel and explore new places. I love spicy food especially because I come from the land of Biryani J. I am a fun loving person, always jovial . I looooooovvvvvvvvve hanging out with my buddies J.

I am perusing bachelor of computer science and I am in 2nd year right now. I learn photography too and I just keep clicking pictures all the time.  I love adventurous sports. Rafting has been the best experience of my life.

Why I come for an exchange project? Hmm.. because I have never been overseas  before and I just love meeting new people from all around the world and it’s a new experience for me and maybe it will help me a lot in my career. I came here for an internship regarding the project HOPE which is related to HIV/AIDS and I wish to create awareness regarding HIV to most of the people in Malaysia.

The first week we had to visit a shelter home where we got to meet little children who where HIV positive. So we just wanted to entertain them and make them happy , so we made them play games, we made them dance, sing , we taught them paper folding and it was a very good experience and I felt really good watching the children smile J

Why I choose Malaysia?? Haha..To be frank, Malaysia is nearby to my country and the cost of living is quite similar. I wish to know more about Malaysian cultures, people and food. I tried the Chinese food for the first time and its pretty good. I wish to explore Malaysia during my internship period. I wish to visit Genting Highlands, Cameron Highlands, Penang, Twin Towers etc. 

Before I leave Malaysia I would like to take lots of happy unforgettable memories along with me J. I would definitely love to come back to Malaysia if I get an opportunity  J. Thank you guys for reading my blog! Keep looking for more updates!!J
