Several interviews witnessed my successful recruitment. However， my parents got extremely angry with what I did and did not agree with me at all， because they held great worries for my safety due to the bad living conditions， prevalent illness， and erratic political circumstance and so on. Considering this point， I chose the relatively safer country， Mauritius. However， once I denied Kenya and Tanzania， the person in charge of this activity informed me that the number of volunteers in Mauritius was full because of his carelessness. Therefore， I again found some opportunity at the end of approval day. Fortunately， the chief person being responsible for volunteer activity in Tanzania promised to give me another chance. Meanwhile， I actively kept in touch with the person in Mauritius and sought counsels to persuade my parents. Being the only daughter in our family， my parents held a total negative attitude towards my action， but I knew I should not give up. If I did so， my previous effort was in vain. Therefore， I turned to the previous volunteers and asked one of them to help me to persuade my father by emphasizing the safety measures that AIESEC took to guarantee my safety.
Upon knowing the truth， my father finally was convinced by me and helped me to persuade my mother and grandparents. At this moment， the person in Mauritius told me that he had added my place and I decided to volunteer in Mauritius at last to comfort them， though my parents had agreed with my volunteer activity in Tanzania.
This experience made me a good volunteer. Meanwhile， I realized the significance of interaction and persistence in life.
