Aaron Koo, AIESEC Curtin University

My name is Aaron Koo and I am currently the Outgoing Exchange Director for AIESEC Curtin University.

My organisation offers students the chance to go overseas to work on volunteer projects on social issues and environmental sustainability.

We give Australia youth the opportunity to make a different in the world and develop their cultural understanding for their personal development.

Last year I went to China to teach High School students about Social Entrepreneurship. There were many other applicants who went to Malaysia to volunteers in a children's orphanage.

These are a few examples of the impact that we are trying to have in the world.
