'When I had to deal with this big disappointment, I was challenged to redefine what learning is to me. It is far more than the learning goals defined in school and it is definitely more than taking tests and getting high grades.
Being a straight A-student is the ideal outcome of the education system. I was the ideal outcome of the educational system.
However, I didn’t know how to design, organize and track my own learning and I was not prepared for my future.'
'Ik heb nu veel meer de regie over mijn eigen leren en kan mijn leven inrichten zoals ik dat wil. Ik leer het meeste door te ervaren en gewoon te doen.'
