I have known Mutembei since 2009.

Mutembei is somebody who is not afraid of the unknown, of stepping outside of his comfort zone to broaden his horizon. In the past 7 years Mutembei has lived and worked in Austria, Brazil, India and Japan. He is a constant learner and extremely passionate about AIESEC. He values the opportunity he has gained through AIESEC and would now like to give back to AIESEC. I highly recommend Mutembei as part of AAI’s Executive Board.

Mutembei has a diverse skill set: From knowledge in HR and Data Analytics practices to cultural understanding – not to forget his passion and patience when it comes to overcoming challenges.
