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...

Being nomadic can make it difficult to identify a "local" community, one to support and give back to. As we continue to move from place to place, constantly changing phone numbers and revising our routines, it becomes easier to detach from those we come across in the places we call our temporary homes. It can be easier to live like this, not taking the time to connect with the needs...

Travel has been my absolute biggest crush for as long as I can remember. I could daydream for hours and hours about cities, countries, and continents all around the world: how it would be like, about the people I’d meet, the person I’d be. I dreamed of walking in a tropical rainforest, the canopy trees closing in on the sky above me, the mud under my boots splashing up with...

Imagine being on top of the world. Imagine looking down on houses that you think you can crush between your thumb and forefinger, conscious of the spongy, green ground underneath your boots. Imagine smelling the crisp autumn air in a foreign country, surrounded by new friends, with the bitter wind whipping your hair and stinging your cheeks. This is what it’s like to be at the top of Arthur’s Seat....

Exactly one week ago, we had departed Kings Cross Station in London for a scenic ride to Edinburgh. We spent four full days in the city. It might not sound like very long, but I guess I had gotten used to the constant change of scenery, and those four days helped me catch my breath again. I got my first impression of Edinburgh riding the bus to “school.” Sitting on...

The 10th grade trip up to Frösåkers, Sweden, was a mashup of culture, fun, and friendships. We started our day with a tour of the large collection of viking ship replicas. Next we donned our life jackets and hopped in a viking rowboat. As I sat down and grabbed my oar we went over the basic rowing movements. After rowing for maybe 20 minutes (and not getting very far) we...

Where and how do you learn? How do you develop a passion for curiosity? How do you keep your mind open to new people, ideas, and possibilities? These are all questions being faced by educators and students as our world gains a more global context.  For a rare few who are lucky enough to have talented and equally curious teachers, this might happen in the confines of the classroom. But...

1. Hi Maxim. It's been two years now since you graduated from THINK Global School. What have you been up to in that time?  Since graduating from TGS, I have been attending the University of Toronto studying mineral (mining) engineering. I know you might be asking why, out of all engineering, I chose mineral engineering? It's because I want to throw myself into the space mining industry. I figured it...

Greetings TGS, Long time reader, first time blogger here. Some of you may have noticed that I can be a little patriotic... My friends in Abu Dhabi used to joke that New Zealand has "small country" syndrome because it is always determined to be the best. I think like the Canadians, we are determined not to be seen as the same as our more populated neighbours. With that in mind...
