Hey!

It’s a good thing that you’re here adventurer. A good thing for your local committee, the entity and definitely for you. Let me share something with you real quick.

My name is Dimeji, and I’m excited that you’re here. I remember looking at a similar application a few years ago, and I’m certain I didn’t want to apply. You see, I was in my final year, and I believed I was done with my Local Committee. I believed strongly that not only had I given my best at that time, but that there was nothing else for me to learn. However back then, I had beautiful people from my Local Committee and the National Plenary explain to me, the beauty of the role, and the benefits that came with it. I remember distinctively that many of them could not quite articulate the benefits of the role. I was sold anyways.

Now if you are reading this, chances are you are nursing the thought of applying to be President of your Local Committee, and I don’t think it’s enough to share stories of how the role is life-changing. I mean, I appreciate your spirit of responsibility and salute your courage, but you need to know that being President can be difficult. You are the final responsible for scores of experiences and the pressure can undeniably be overwhelming sometimes.

Now, I don’t want to talk about the pressures too – because I do believe that will be underselling the role. Especially because those pressures are worth it. I just want to let you know two things.

One, should you decide to turn in your application, I need you to feel rest assured that there will be a support system waiting for you through the application process and through till you begin your experience, and end it. We have taken measures to ensure that the LCP experience is as beautiful as it was designed to be and you’d love it.

Two, I need you to know that the best way to explain the benefits of being LCP is: Being LCP is a blank canvas. You get to design what you want on it, and impressively enough, you get enough guidance should you need it.

I wish you all the best in your application superstar. Don’t forget to check the contact list page if you need to have consultancies. Now let’s dive in!

presidents' testimonials

Being an LCP has been a learning curve for me. It has challenged me to live by my values. I have learned much through capacity-building sessions and sharing ideas with other AIESECers. I am self-aware now and have been able to connect to my WHY, tasted and experienced the true AIESEC essence. If you ask me if I will ever be an LCP again, my answer will be oh f* YES! IT’S GOOD TO BE AN LCP I must say that I'll encourage my fellow AIESECers to seize the opportunity of becoming an LCP.

It's good!!! It's good!!! It's good to be an LCP!!! It's good!!! Being LCP has been one of the best decisions I've made without regrets. A year ago, I never thought I would reach this far, but my commitment to this entity (AiG) and the organization as a whole is what has made me who I am today. This role has brought me new learnings, and I have grown immensely as a person. It hasn't been an easy ride like any other, and I have always welcomed challenges. One significant thing I've learned within AIESEC is to always move out of my comfort zone, welcome challenges, and keep growing. And the only way you can achieve that is by applying for higher roles. Being LCP has made me understand people very well and how to work in situations that require critical thinking. I will genuinely say this role has increased my thinking capacity and the way I perceive things. I'd leave with this quote that inspired me throughout my journey in AIESEC. “ Always believe in yourself and always stretch yourself beyond your limits. Your life is worth more than you think because you can accomplish more than you know. You have more potential than you think, but you will never know your full potential unless you keep challenging yourself and pushing beyond your self-imposed limits”. ~ Roy T. Bennett Carpe Diem!!!

I will be honest with you, the ride as LCP is not easy at all but it is the best leadership experience you can ever get in AIESEC. The hard and soft skills gained within your experience as LCP is enormous. From leadership, tolerance, effective communication, marketing, personal branding, good work ethics, etc, I cannot type everything. The role is impacting and demanding. Mind you, the sacrifices and stress will be as much as the growth. Don't be scared of the demands. Just go for it. You can do it !!! All the best in your application

My role as an LCP is like a double investment in my leadership and personal development. It's been one of the most fulfilling experiences I've had in my growth journey. Seeing oneself as a manager of an entire Local Committee, managing several departments, gives you a different approach to some things. This LCP role has allowed me to try new things, and I have lost count of the skills I have developed because of this role; it gives me that vibe I can boldly switch careers and confidently manage an organisation to improve. I remember how empty I felt while applying for the LCP role, I'm yet to complete my term, but I'm endowed with so many skills (both hard and soft skills) thanks to this role. My advice for anyone who wants to take up this role is clear, don't hold back; it could be challenging, but what is growth without overcoming challenges and choosing courage over comfort? Go for it! Trust me; it's good to be an LCP!

My AIESEC experience has been great, I joined AIESEC on 8th February 2020, and during my time in AIESEC, I have been in IGV, OGTa and FLA before becoming LCP. With all the experience. It's been educational. I mean the opportunities are there, you just have to make sure you want to grow and tap into the opportunities available. All the opportunities have taught me discipline, hard work and managerial skills, which are now helping me in my LCP role. So I’d say AIESEC is the place where you can do your stuff - make mistakes and correct them - so you don't make them in the outside world which would differentiate you from others. My experience so far has been fun, educational and inspiring and the fact that I can also impact others is a plus. I have learnt a lot of skills which include emotional intelligence, all of which work hand in hand to make you a better person. The only thing I’d say is you have to be present and make a conscious effort to take advantage of the opportunities handed to you and work consciously towards your growth.

Being an LCP is enjoyable. It’s fun and stressful, but working with others helps you share ideas and be diverse. The top 3 things I gained by being the Local Committee President are that being an LCP helped me practice my skills and further add up more skills of being proactive, working under pressure and being creative; it allowed me to be more social and learn how to work on a team to get a job done and being an LCP paves the way to try new things you didn’t know you could ever do. An essential piece of advice that I have to give anyone considering applying is that your skills need to be developed alongside your schooling, and being an LCP sets this and more.

Being an LCP, as I always say, is like a rollercoaster. It gives you highs and lows and everything in between. The lows tend to be much more thrilling than the highs, and that’s because they serve as a reminder of what I am capable of and that I can be so much more. I mean, what’s life without challenging situations? It’s good to be an LCP because you feel like an all-rounder working with amazing people from different departments, which builds you. AIESEC prepares you for the world out there, and the medium of being an LCP was worth it. If I had a chance, I’d do it again. It’s not going to be easy, darling, but with the right support system in and out of AIESEC, you’ll be phenomenal. Don’t just pass through AIESEC; let AIESEC pass through you and watch yourself become a ray of sunshine. Godspeed!
