Vendy from DNS 2019

Who am I?

My name is Vendy. I am 19 years old. I come from a small village called Drnholec, which is situated in the Czech Republic. I could say about myself that I am a little person with a big heart. I try to have a positive look upon the world, to live in the moment and be grateful for everything that I have.

I have always known that being closed in an office everyday, rummaging through stacks of papers is not for me. Since I have always wanted to help animals, I decided to study at a veterinary high school.

My wish to study abroad

After graduating the school, I did not know what to do. All I knew is that I did not want to study at a university in the Czech Republic. According to my friends, who study at these universities, it is just full of senseless exams, stress and last minute learning. I just could not imagine doing it. Therefore I decided to take a different path. Since I was little, I have always wanted to travel around the world, learn about new cultures, and take interest in other people more than just in myself. After convincing my parents, the plan was set. Go abroad!

After sleepless nights spent on researching what I should actually do abroad, I came across the DNS website. I did not have any clue that something like this even existed. I really liked the combination of learning, travelling and working at the same time.

The concept of a teacher is quite different here in DNS

And here I am! 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‘ve always wanted to learn how to pass on information to more people. To motivate them not to be afraid to make a change in their life, that the planet on which they live is not indifferent to them, and make them realise how beautiful life can be when we are not afraid of it.

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.
