2015, 2016, 2017 Summer period, Spain & Estonia - Camp Counselour
Creating and leading non-formal education activities for youth and children (6-18 y.o.)

Educational pathway

I find it challenging to convey my Educational Background since most of my learning journey has happened far from classrooms and degrees. Here is my best attempt.

I Love Learning. Since I left the Formal Education system I have spent (and I keep spending) every day of my life learning - about myself, about others and about life. This self-directed learning journey -full of mentors and peers to support me- has taken the shape of:

-countless hours of studing books, video and audio conferences
-countless kilometers exploring and traveling over 38 countries
-countless conversations full of insights
-countless hours of volunteering
-countless hours of shadowing and assisting mentors with the skills and competences I wanted to learn
-countless hours of learning by doing, experiencing, trying and "failing"
-contless hours of self-reflection and journaling to process and conceptualize my learnings
-countless hours participating in hundreds of non-formal education programmes -workshops, trainings and courses.

Here are some of the educational programmes that have had the biggest impact on my work and on my personal development:
