“I think I got used to unknown things…. and I now have the power to survive in any kind of situation, to figure out some kind of solution… I am kind of prepared for everything. But I miss my team!”
“People are different and have different boundaries. DNS helped me to realize that everybody has different limits, and we cannot ask everybody to do the same. This is what I use also a lot when I’m teaching.”
“DNS redefined the meaning of “teacher” for me. A teacher is someone who inspires, challenges and cares, and I try to do that every day. I work at a specialised care home for people with psycho-social issues.”
Finally, I know I am ready to engage any adventure, and since I was little I loved to talk in public, share, learn and teach. So, then when I found out about DNS it was the light at the end of the tunnel.
Kamal Ahamada graduated from DNS in 2009. In this video, he shares some insights into the DNS experience and how it influences his work as a teacher and community leader today.
I am from a small province called Catalonia, located to the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, beautiful for its mountains called the Pyrenees and the beaches of the Mediterranean coast.
“At some point I decided that I wanted to be a teacher who fights for justice and dignity together with the people. A teacher who is not limited by the four walls of a classroom – rather the opposite.”
Without warning, I broke the rules and chose to travel, and for the first time I felt that I was free to learn, free from any boundaries, able to check the perimeter and test my limits. Pulling me as far as I could reach.
Today, we need debates about feminism, peace, ecology, social movements, and much more. Creative alternative education offers each of us new perspectives and new ways of understanding.
“I want to be a good teacher and DNS taught me that it is only possible through a process of self-discovery and exploration. I followed that path since graduation and it takes me to places I could not have predicted.”
I dream about a world where people don’t fight for territory, resources, borders. A world, where people are happy to see each other, regardless their skin color. A World, where they don’t meassure you…
Eternity is just moments glued together by the web of togetherness. And change is an always present constant. So, we all eventually go through it. Some people change to become what they are meant to be…
I was compelled to join DNS program to learn another way to learn – regarding its environment, methodology, systematization & application – where, as an example, we find value given to experiences.
I look forward to spending the coming years with the awesome guys that I have met so far. I know for a fact we are going to have an amazing time and discover so so much! Hope you all enjoyed reading this – PEACE OUT!
If you never jump into the pool you will never learn to swim! So here I am trying a new experience and learning as much as possible from myself and all the people I am meeting through this path we build day by day.
