Karolina · DNS 2016
Hej there! I am Karolina, a world citizen who was born in the land of Lithuania 25 years ago.
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 according size of your wallet or amount of make up on your face. A World, where everyone can be themselves and be okay with it.
A World, where instead of building a higher fence, we would build a bigger table. A World, where being a human being is an argument, valid enough to show one’s kindness and generosity. A World, where we respect and appreciate the miraculously beautiful planet we have a chance to be a part of.
A World, where we not only take all these aspects into account, but also behave accordingly. I believe that we have much bigger potential to live in this kind of world than we ever use. The DNS programme gives a lot of opportunities to face the challenges of the modern world. It’s just up to me now, what kind of result I want to make out of it.

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.”
I see DNS Teacher Training as a lifestyle which will challenge the concept of education in the world and help people like me to transform and find the unique kind of teacher within. Either we rebel or we don’t.

“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.”
