He was half Kazakh, half Russian. His father was a director at some large factory or something like that. He had money, no one could ever call Aman a miser. He gladly participated in almost all student events, claiming to be a leader, or, at least, an ideological inspirer. It was a matter of honor for him to join the student organization AIESEC casinosenligneca.
“AIESEC is a platform for young people who want to develop and make a positive contribution to society. AIESEC provides an opportunity to participate in the youth internship program, as well as gain leadership experience by leading various projects and activities of the organization,” the organization's prospectus said.
At the beginning of the first year, an AIESEC representative came to the institute where Arkady and Aman studied and offered mass membership, describing the amazing opportunities that open up for those who take a foreign language test.
As you might guess, English was a foreign language, and Arkady and Aman successfully took a step towards “new perspectives”.
