Rachel Corso

In-Country Coordinator

1. Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from and what were you doing before arriving at THINK Global School?

I am originally from the New Haven area in Connecticut where I studied English Literature, Creative Writing, and Secondary Education at Quinnipiac University. I moved to New York City in 2015 to work on my MFA in Creative Writing /Poetry at Sarah Lawrence College around the same time I started working at TGS.

2. What are your favorite aspects of your job?

Tackling the many nuances in logistics that differ from country to country, and of course, working with the students.

3. What aspects of THINK Global School’s educational model do you find most appealing?

Hands down the Personal Projects! I think it’s so unbelievably cool that students have the opportunity to explore anything they are truly interested in–- from learning how to formulate environmentally friendly shampoo bars to Japanese courses to becoming a certified Yoga instructor.

4. If you could make one major change to global education, what would it be?

More student autonomy.

5. Which of our core values do you feel you most embody, and why?

I definitely feel like I am a strong combination of Meraki & Grit because how can I continue to grow and be better than I was yesterday if I don’t put all of myself into everything that I do — which includes things I don’t want to do and that are challenging for me. If I want students to grow and be their best selves, live their best lives, I need to show them it is possible.

6. What is your most memorable travel experience thus far?

Eating dirty riverboat Pad Thai with Tashi in Thailand.

7. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Take me to the Maldives!

7. What is your favorite book, and why?

On the Road by Jack Kerouac — simply because.
