Who am I?

My name is Gabrielė, I come from a small but amazingly beautiful country – Lithuania.
There I was introduced with the WOSM (World Organisation of Scout Movement) and have been a scout for over 10 years. Scouting has opened my eyes and my mind in many ways, I completely fell in love with nature, people and travelling. It also gave me strong fundamental values, I learned through experience what is respect, friendship, gratitude, loyalty, comradeship. Since I embraced those values I try my best to represent them everyday.

I want to become the effective activist that I want to become, who uses education as a tool of mobilisation.

“I believe, it is possible to raise conscious, creative and mindful generations. I have made it the goal of my life to change the education system in my country or at least influence the change as much as possible.

Goal of my life

When I was 16 years old I started to think how can I contribute to the world and my country. Since I was still in school, I saw with my own eyes how bored and unmotivated the students were during most of the classes, mainly because of the theory-based methods of teaching and learning. We had no experience of real life, but we were craving for it. Thankfully I had some talented Teachers, who inspired me to reach for Justice.

Throughout many talks about politics, climate, environment, technologies and society I figured that the only real solution for Change is to change the education system. there is a need to adapt it to the needs of the children of the 21st century. That way, I believe, it is possible to raise conscious, creative and mindful generations. I have made it the goal of my life to change the education system in my country or at least influence the change as much as possible.

Why DNS?

As I’ve finished my basic education, I didn’t want to rush into another institution, I didn’t trust them! Because I want to change the education system, I was looking for some kind of alternative pedagogy course, that could give me knowledge and experience at the same time.

I was more than surprised and excited when I found a DNS advertisement on social media, totally by accident. I couldn’t rip my eyes of my phone, reading about it. It was hard to believe that I’ve found such place where I can get the education I want.

Here we think about what kind of world are we going to leave to the future generations and also what kind of generations are we going to leave to the world.

Even though I was a little bit scared about becoming a teacher, since I have never dreamed of becoming one, I realised that the concept of the teacher is quite different here in DNS...

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.

My passion for learning makes me invest quite some time in finding out new things, new ways and new processes and, of course, my passion for learning made me become a teacher.

"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."
