What was your biggest fear post-TGS graduation? Not knowing whether what I was doing was the right choice. I was quite overwhelmed and uncertain about my decisions and especially about how my whole gap year would look like. But choosing to let go of the high expectations I had set for myself and focus on only one thing first, which was my internship, helped me get a hold of my...

It is clear that we live in a divided world, one riddled with bigotry, inequality, and ignorance. We live in a world where car bomb blasts force a routine ring upon Afghan ears, where American congressmen applaud President Trump’s decision to walk away from the Paris Climate Agreement, where a third of South Sudan’s population are starving to death through a famine that shows no signs of letting up.  But...

In her celebrated TED Talk, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie warns of The Danger of a Single Story. “To show a people as one thing, over and over again, that is a single story,” Adichie states. The truth is, I only knew one single story of Bosnia & Herzegovina (BiH) before I arrived, and that same narrative was reinforced through every murmur, stare, and worried conversation I encountered before my visit. “But…...

His stories are mythical portraits of real-life Latin America. He is a revealer of human truths -- one who chronicles oppression, magic, miracles and love. It was over a year ago when I first introduced my students to renowned Boom writer and political journalist of the 1960s-70s, Gabriel García Márquez. During this time, we would wander through Buenos Aires' bookstores, trying to get a feel for the Latin literary spirit....

But...
