I have only just boarded the bandwagon of JCI Curepipe and so far, I can truly say I have enjoyed all 3 events I have been to…be it the visit to the Icery Shelter in Curepipe, the Team Bonding Nature Walk at Black River and yes, even the JCI induction course… shocking, I know!

But what struck me most and made me appreciate the little time I have spent with the JCI Curepipe crew was the friendship and camaraderie reigning among all the members and aspiring members together. You could definitely feel the sense of belonging of the members to their organization, members believing in the JCI creed and ready for challenges but mind you they do know how to have a good time…and I definitely witnessed this during the Team Bonding activity which ended with an awesome BBQ at the beach under a beautiful starry night!:P

I’m sure lots of people must have heard what an amazing organization JCI is and why you should join it and the personal and professional benefits you get from being a JCI member… cliché one might think but personally I do think it’s true. I went for the JCI Induction course and even though I did get picked on a few times (not much of a surprise!), it did teach me quite a few things about JCI as an international organization, how it promotes youth leadership and I found that my own ambitions in life match to a large extent the goals of JCI. JCI is definitely a great platform not only for me, but for any youth wishing to translate professional and personal ambitions into reality and at the same time contributing to their development in all spheres at all levels.

So far the one activity which has touched me the most was the visit to the Icery Shelter for Children in Distress. It was simply a pleasure being there with those amazing young and intelligent girls and help bring a smile to the faces of these children and I really do hope we make another visit there soon enough.

I’ll end my article by quoting Shakespeare, “How far that little candle throws his beams…so shines a good deed in a naughty world.”

Because I believe that JCI as an organization can truly help make a difference to society and promote the voice of the younger generation around the world.

And here’s to my future days at JCI Curepipe…
