Why reading is so important

When I was little, I loved to read. 3-year-old me would even sit in our living room with a book in her hands “reading” out loud while turning the pages. Well, I couldn´t read yet, but I already pretended to do so as I knew all my favorite stories by heart and knew exactly where I had to turn a page. In fact, I … Read More Why reading is so important

“Colombia – more than drugs & cocaine!”

Interview with Eric from Colombia   Which country do you consider to be your country? That´s a difficult question, if you are asking for a specific country.

Too little diversity in our education system

If only schools could teach us what other cultures can. We would probably live in a much more peaceful world. If schools would teach us the respect you gain once you become friends with people from all over the world, we would live in such a nice community. Where everyone has a different background, where everyone lives together and learns from his/her neighbors. Sounds … Read More Too little diversity in our education system

Do you find it hard to be yourself sometimes? I certainly did in the past. I guess we all know situations where we had to put up a mask in order to fit in. Where we had to hide behind a made-up image and weren’t able to express ourselves. Too big was the risk of not being accepted, of not fitting into society. It … Read More Being your true self
