Le Phan Vien Hy Function: OGX Intern at Indonesia
In this issue, we would like to introduce Ms. Le Phan Vien Hy from OGX. She just returned from a 2-month internship in Indonesia. Let’s read her excellent eXchange story and see how moving we are. Hy’s story begins with the plane’s landing at Indonesia’s airport…
I came to Indonesia in a very hot day of summer 2011. Sitting on the airplane, I asked myself “What next? AIESEC Surabaya (the city where I came) invited me to go there to be an OC member. Huhm….How VI I am (VI in VIP). Let’s see what the prepare to welcome me!”. After 3 hour sitting on the flight from HCMC to Jakarta, next 6 hours waiting at the airport to catch the next flight and then 1 more hour to Surabaya - my destination city, I was totally exhausted. However, I still kept on my mind that I had to prepare myself to meet the AIESECers of Surabaya LC in the most beautiful appearance. With a smile on my lips, I stepped out of the airport and looked around to find those who held flowers or a table which signed “Welcome Ms. Hy to Indonesia” or something like that. And….
Yes, there were many people who had flowers, but they were not the ones whom I was looking for. I looked around, nobody. I walked around the airport, still nobody at all. 1 hour, 2 hour, “what the hell is going on here?”, I asked myself. The weather was still hot, and sitting among the crowd in the airport made me more and more tired. Time passed by, and I still stood there to wait for them. Lost in disappointment and tiresome situation , I tried to find the contact of my host family and finally, I found it! Feeling extremely lucky at the moment, I asked a security at the airport to call my host family and waited for them to go there and take me home. Thanks God, I eventually went home safe and sound.
The next day, I wanted to know what was my JD, so I tried to contact the AIESECers of Surabaya LC. However, nobody replied. Calling or sending them email still couldn’t get me out of joblessness. They just said to me that “We are sorry for not picking you up at the airport. But you are here already, so enjoy your first days in Indonesia!”. And yes, I enjoyed my very first days in Indonesia by staying home, going online to chat with my friends and unable to go anywhere of the city. A friend of mine chatted with me and asked “Are you a liar, Hy? Why you are online every day, where’s your project?”. I was very sad when hearing so. I tried to contact the OCP of my project to ask where my buddy was, what my JD was. But she always answered in a way that everything wasn’t her fault, but mine. I didn’t understand anything at all. She broke her promises thousand times. I was so angry that I quarreled with her, and she said that she didn’t want to see me anymore. Ok, if she said so. I decided to work with @ anymore.
I told my host family all the troubles I met, and they were really sympathetic with me. They said that: “Ok, if AIESEC Surabaya treated you badly, you still have us. Just enjoy your time! We will help you!”. And my host family did help me the best way they could. My host mom was the principle of a school for disabled children (I’m so thankful for that). Therefore, every morning, she took me to that school so that I could play with the children there. There was a school for down-syndrome, autism, deaf, and dumb students. The teachers there were so nice that they showed me the best way to teach and play with those students effectively. I could say that it was the most wonderful time in my life because it did help me to realize a lot of things. When I was in Vietnam, I thought that taking care of the disabled was the government’s responsibility so I didn’t have to care about that. However, the time I spent with my students in Surabaya turned my thought around. Sharing my love with the children, playing, laughing and having fun with them made me feel more energetic and be able to overcome the difficult days in Indonesia. Sharing my love to those students not only helped me (and the students also) to be happy, but also helped me to realize the value of love. I realized that when love was multiplied, we could be able to feel happy all the time, live with an optimistic mind and be able to see how beautiful this life was.
Moreover, going for an internship in Indonesia turned me from a shy to an adventurous one. My internship gave me chances to travel to most of the famous places in Indonesia and it could be said that if you dropped me to anywhere of the world, I could survive easily. Now, close your eyes and imaging that you are standing on the top of the volcano, besides you is the slope of 45 degree down to the mouth of the volcano with the column of sunfur smoke flying non-stop from it, how do you feel? What a dangerous feeling, right? Swimming with sharks, diving deep down the sea to see the beautiful coral reef, sleeping on the isolated island with the sea on my left side and the dark jungle on my right, etc., were what I had used to think that I could never be able to do. But I did all those things in Indonesia! Furthermore, when I was in Bali, I got my chance to surf play parasailing. The feeling when I stood on the board, surfed from waves to waves made me feel like I could control all the waves in the sea! Moreover, when flying up high with the parachute and seeing the whole Bali from above, I felt like I was in the heaven. And nothing but my internship could offer me those greatest opportunities to challenge myself, experience the things I had never done before and develop more and more. Time passed by, my internship went to the end. It was time for me to come back to Vietnam. Now, sitting here and typing all these words, I could feel all the things in Indonesia just like it was yesterday. My internship did help me to get out of my box, give me more strength to step out of my comfort zone and offer me many opportunities to discover the giant within me. The only one thing I still feel regretful that I wasn’t proactive enough to involve in AIESEC Surabaya activities, so that I couldn’t live my AIESEC life 100%. Therefore, I decide to start all over again: I will take another internship in June 2012 in EUROPE and I strongly believe that it can help me to live my AIESEC life fully and develop more and more. And now, AIESEC did give me chance to CHANGE and DEVELOP. How about you? Life’s what you make it so let’s make it rock!
