Being the first symposium scholar is quite surreal – it’s not easy to describe, but thank god for metaphors. Getting back to THINK Global School is like falling into a whirlpool. You are surrounded by branches, which represent a moment. You want to grab every single one, because, in the moments you catch, you remember why TGS is home.

Grade 9 student Isaac F. spent his winter break transforming his photographic content from Ecuador into powerful graphics with a voice and a mission.
