About Kosmos 9

So well, this is me. My name is Rahel and I’m writing this blog because I care. And as I found out long ago writing helps. Sharing does too. And so if just someone from time to time gets inspired by one of the posts, I’m a happy camper.

What I do? I’m a volunteer for life. And in my free time I’m a student. At the moment I’m doing my Master in Global Studies at Freiburg University Germany / Flacso University Buenos Aires Argentina / Chulalongkorn University Bangkok Thailand. That seems like a lot, well it is. And it’s an amazing challenge and experience.

I first got in contact with Global Education through AFS Switzerland and EFIL, the European Federation for Intercultural Learning. Later I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to be part of the GLEN-GΓ©co 2010 cycle where I made many friends and became a Global Education Multiplyer. It’s a life-long journey and I’m up for it.

Kosmos 9 is at the same time also a personal journal. It follows the thoughts of C. Wright Mills who writes: “Whenever you feel strongly about events or ideas you must try not to let them pass from your mind, but instead to formulate them for your files and in so doing draw out their implications, show yourself either how foolish these feelings or ideas are, or how they might be articulated into productive shape.”

Thanks for reading.

  1. Beautifully put. Your facility with English is simple enough to draw out the elegant beauty of your ideas and developed enough to reveal the complexity. Great stuff and what an adventure!

  2. I love your quote from C. Wright Mills! That’s exactly what I’m trying to do with my blog too! It feels so good to write down my experiences and share them with others — even if it touches only one person out there in the universe, that’s enough!

    • Oh sorry for that! I had some trouble with wordpress. I think the article should be back now πŸ™‚ Thanks for informing me about the trouble!!

      • Cheers! Your posts are “must read” now and my morning cup of tea at 6am needs to be accompanied by a good mind thrashing or my day just isn’t the same πŸ™‚
