AIESEC Evolve conference in Singapore

Wow, where do I start. This is gonna be a very long post. So here goes..

Well I thought I won't be able to attend the conference because my university didn't approve my leave at first [ well it was the holidays but there were still other issues..]. Then just days before the conference I got the approval, with the help of my friends in university, tnx loads to them:)
I already had a ticket due to leave early morning on the 6th. I got the approval on the 5th morning, packed my bags in the afternoon and was out of the country the very next morning! Wouldn't have made it without the help of my family of course.. especially mom! tnx mom:)

When I arrived in Singapore I joined the rest of the Sri Lankan delegation who were also from the University of Moratuwa[Colombo South Local Committee]and had a wonderful time for the 5 days of the conference!

The theme of the conference was 'From Social Entrepreneurship to Social Intrapreneurship'. I learned a lot at the conference and it did help me evolve:)But most of all I met AIESECers from 14 different countries and made loads of new friends.

I had just one day left after the conference for sightseeing and shopping. In the end I spent most of that day at sentosa island. I was a bit dissapointed they didn't have bunjee jumping[that's definitely on my 'to do some day' list] but i got to ride on a sky tram which was quite exciting.. I also got to see the pink dolphins who were really cute.

All in all it was a fascinating experience. AIESEC in Singapore did an amazing job organizing the conference, hats off to them:)
