Gabija · DNS 2018



My name is Gabija and I’m an optimistic Lithuanian who likes to sleep and eat cepelinai. Before joining DNS I lived in same little town Visaginas.

I really loved living there because of my friends and unique atmosphere that Visaginas has but it wasn’t enough for me – I wanted something else, I wanted more than that. Like Belle from Disney’s ”Beauty and the Beast” said ”There must be more than this provincial life!”. And so, before finishing my high school I was sure that I will join DNS – And so I did! With two awesome guys from my hometown we came here to learn and live diffrent lifestyle from what our society expected us to do (finish high school, finish university, get married and work borish job).

I don’t usually go out from my comfort zone but if I do I try to do that in a blast and that is one of the reasons why I choose DNS.
The other reasons why I choose DNS is pretty simple – I want to learn about world from diffrent prospective, grow as human being and  become a teacher that changes his students lifes, a teacher whom his students can trust and makes a diffrence. Also, I want to make this world a  better place and I think with help of my team we can do that!

Here is some lyrics from song ”Pocketful of sunshine” by Natasha Bedingfield because I have too much time to finish  writing this and I don’t really know what to say more.

”I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oh whoa
Do what you want, but you’re never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
No, oh whoa
I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oh whoa”

I hope DNS will teach me the essential pedagogical skills that I will need in order to become the effective activist that I want to become, who uses education as a tool of mobilisation.

I feel it’s a key point to keep questioning what has been considered a norm. I would like to immerse myself into what we assume about learning and teaching and search for alternatives.

Roisin · DNS 2019

I have decided to join DNS for many reasons – one being that after my many adventures I have come to realise how important education is and that it plays a key role in societal change.

Egle · Teacher at DNS

“Education must empower us to lead our own life, develop social connections, lift people up and bring them together. It must minimize the chances of being manipulated or becoming actors in someone else’s play.”
