Joel · DNS 2018
Hola guapas y guapos! My name’s Joel and I come from Spain. I am very glad to share my daily life with the 2018 team family!
Before joining DNS programme, I spent some years of my life studying Teaching Education in college. After finishing my bachelor, I felt like I had a lot of skills missing. I didn’t want to be part of the predominantly stylish school system in Spain. After some time, I tried to forget about it and I started travelling as much as possible while working.
At some point in my life, I realised I was stuck so I felt the need to change my lifestyle. I was looking for something different and challenging. Suddenly I found this programme which could potentially give me a different perspective on education as a student and as a teacher.
Furthermore, I found very interesting to have the chance of living in a vibrant community like this. As you can imagine I love traveling and this programme gives us the chance to do it in a really authentic way.
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.

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.
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.
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 truly believe that this kind of education can give you something that you can lean on the rest of your life. All those beautiful people who will be a part of your journey will teach you more than any book could have.
I think I’m open minded, passionate about everything and people say that my smile captures my positive character! I really like arts and nature, especially forests! Also, I’m a scout, it’s a lifestyle!
By contributing our galaxies to each other, we can create something very unique, alternative and special together. People that want to complete other people’s vision are very important today.
