Hej, So, some stuff about me, the name is Justas, I am 21 years old and I come from Lithuania. I lived in Tvind school centre for the last 5 years, starting from the Boarding school PTG until now - my second year in DNS. I joined DNS because I wanted to and still want to make a difference in the world, these might seem big words for a single person, but that is why I like to be part of the team because we share the goal of learning about how to do that, usually by taking action ourselves. Being a teacher was not my dream, but it has become one after I realized that a teacher does not necessarily have to be in the classroom "teaching". Anyone can be a teacher and one can teach in so many different ways. I chose DNS as it teaches about being an active part of the society and facing big issues of our time. During the education, I also realized that together as a team one can achieve much more and here I gain the skills to work together with people.
So far my experience in the program was amazing, every day is a day of learning and experiencing something new - the concept of lifelong learning. My first year of the program is where I learned about our global society and challenges of out time while traveling trough the Southern Africa with my team. Neo-colonialization, Climate change, Education system were the headlines we wanted to talk about in our Bring it to the public period as they touched us the most. I was a bit skeptical about the second year of the program at the start, "is just Europe, nothing new" I thought, but as the Europe period came closer I started to see the city full of doors to be opened and knowledge about our society to be taken out of them, not to mention all the actions to do. Like occupying an empty school and demanding to turn it into a refugee center. Now I am looking forward to my 3 months do what you think is most appropriate to do period. I still have to find out what to do. And the teaching practice in where I have a wish to work with educating adults or youth who knows where... In my possible free time, I like to go kitesurfing, do different kind of sports ,play board or computer games and do some Activism!
