Get off the treadmill

deadlines.jpg Incredible it is how things change after a few days abroad.

A difference that makes a difference

new-york-night-skyline2.jpg I am starting off for maybe two of the most interesting months of my life. Travelling for eight weeks throughout the USA on the multinational program of Eisenhower Fellowships I have the chance to meet outstanding people, expand my network, get to know things I may have never heard of before. Two months as Eisenhower fellow means also spending time with 23 other fellows from 23 nations all over the world with 23 personalities, 23 backgrounds and individual ... weiterlesen...
