The last minute packing of hopes and dreams and clean socks into a suitcase that threatened to spill over twenty three kilos wasn’t a new experience. I’d crammed enough times to know that I did not need four pairs of black jeans, but that I did need my birkenstocks. Because you learn that it doesn’t matter how Nico looks at you when you wear ‘socks and stocks’ - it’s your...

While in Peru, Breanna Reynolds' humanities students selected a SPEED (social, political, environmental, economic, or demographic) factor to study in depth. In looking at the environmental factors Peruvians face, 10th grader Harry W wrote the short story "The Tree," which exposes deforestation and is told from the narrative view of a tree itself. Decades of existence within the woods enlightened me to treat every living form as one amongst us,...

It had been almost an hour, and due to the chilly morning breeze, the weather was quickly becoming unbearable. Having no other option, I waited patiently, but there were no signs of relief as I could hardly sense any movement on the road. With mixed feelings of excitement and nervousness, I stood there thinking about the long day ahead. “Will I adjust to my new urban environment?” “Can I compete...

I have grown up by the ocean, where the raindrops never stop falling and where the air is always moist. The Sacred Valley during the dry season is the complete opposite to my hometown. The lack of rain turns everything into dust - the ground you walk on, the air you breathe, your cracked skin. It was here that I learnt the importance of a really good moisturizer. I learnt that...

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. What you grasp is the love, respect, and integrity; you grasp...

The morning of June 8, 2016 was surreal. Walking back into our Student Residence, Villa la Stella, was like being flushed into a larger family of 45 people who are so different but love each other despite, and for, their differences. I had forgotten how all-encompassing the TGS energy is within a few days of being with my Shetler clan. Feeling the togetherness, comfortableness, closeness, and the lack of judgment...

The tram, adorned in a blanket of graffiti, makes its first stop since I stepped on. The tired doors creak open to reveal the mall. Home to all the foreign cuisine and expensive clothes shops in Sarajevo, its glass windows, doors and walls scream modernity. It is a distinct contrast to what the tram passes minutes later: streets defined by buildings of beige, peach, cream and grey, littered with bullet...

I can't believe you were the one to catch my eye. I don't believe in love at first sight, but the second I saw you, I was already in too deep. I had never seen such a place like you, with your enigmatic past and thriving future. You captivated me as soon as the smell of cigarettes hit my face, and just like the smoke, I initially thought your enchantment...

Tattooing is the most misunderstood art form in Japan today. Looked down upon for centuries and rarely discussed in social circles, people with tattoos are outcasts in this country, banned from most public spaces such as beaches, bathhouses, and even gyms. Tattoos have an extensive history in Japan, and to truly understand the stigma behind them it is essential to be aware of their significance. The first records of tattoos...

Last month, during our UK weXplore, I took fourteen students to get fitted for kilts at the Highland House of Fraser in Inverness, Scotland. I must say, each time I plan an activity involving traditional dress I get a mixed bag of looks and reactions from my colleagues and students on whether donning cultural dress is acceptable or disrespectful. Hopefully through this blog I can clarify my opinions on the...
