Content Desciption: To the members of AIESEC: In the early morning of 30th of August, a bus carrying 65 participants of AIESEC’s International Congress 2011 in Kenya met with an accident on its way from Nairobi to Mombasa for post-conference holidays. There was one fatality, Elmer Pérez Requiz, a native of Bolivia and President of AIESEC in Bolivia. One person was also severely injured, Irma Bedjic, Vice President of AIESEC in Bosnia & Herzegovina. She is being treated. Few other individuals also suffered minor injuries, for which they have already received treatment. We are in touch with the families of Elmer and Irma and supporting them. All other individuals were treated at the hospital in the city of Voi and are continuing to Mombasa. Though the conference ended on the 29th, the conference team is working nonstop to secure medical and psychological support to all involved. Moreover, the local authorities have been alerted and are taking appropriate actions to determine the cause of the accident. We will share the full name, citizenship, and entity of all affected members as soon as possible. Today is a sad day for all 60,000 AIESEC members and their families in 110 countries and territories. As we continue our work to empower young people, we will hold everyone affected by this unfortunate accident in our minds and in our hearts. Tetiana Mykhailiuk President AIESEC International

When she hung up the phone she whispered to her self “I really did it” Kim hung up the phone and went to the bathroom. Her weave was itchy and grown out, but she couldnt go fix it because she had spent every last cent buying all of the cds. Kim sat on the toilet, only for it to break under her weight. It was then that she realized, standing on shards of porcelain as she rubbed her fingers under the rolls, that she wasn’t Lil Kim anymore. She was Big Kim”
