Teaching English in Buddhist Monasteries
As a young architect, i strive for knowledge and life experiences, and have always participated in communal activities in order to try and make a a change in an individual's life, because i strongly believe that every person has the right to enjoy life at its optimum, i have volunteered twice in my life here in Amman and it was one of the most enjoyable experiences i have ever had, i participated in an urban regeneration project in one of the slums of Amman, and we worked with the community so as to enhance the quality of life in it, though the project was sensitive, yet we managed not to super impose any of our solutions on the area, we were responsible for waste management and had to come up with reasonable and sustainable solution to decrease the amount of waste and raise the level of awareness within the public, it was one of the most interesting 60 days of my life.
After that project i started my professional practice in architecture so as to gain the correct tools and methodologies of design, and how to implement them in various projects that i might encounter in the future, and after two years of practicing architecture, i would like to orient my life and do a life changing step in it, whether it was architecturally related or not, its the humanitarian side that im seeking for, in which the public is helped and most importantly involved in the process of development.
The following opportunities that i signed up for shall be my first step towards this change, the ability to help children, youth and elderly through education satisfies me, because here on earth we are all bind together, and i do believe that we should share our experiences, knowledge and expertise with each other so that our world can evolve to a peaceful and meaningful hub, where we all enjoy our rights equally.
Not also will I be educating people, they will also be giving me even more, through new cultures, beliefs, visions and various experiences, thats why i chose Nepal and Bali as the two main destinations, not only there quite unique scenery but also the culture makes me curious to know about it more, and what better way to know a culture through living in it.
I hope this step is the first of many, and a start of a new and an enjoyable experience too.
