As for me, I'm beginning my Master's in NYC this fall at New York University. I've been working on TH!NK ABOUT IT since the project's birth in 2008 and I'm so proud of what we've done so far. The community has grown into a strong network of active, engaged people. We've had important discussions. We've produced important stories. We've traveled together around the world and now we're a global force.
To get a sense of how far we've actually come (and the different identities this project has taken on, check out what TH!NK1 looked like here). There were drastic changes from one TH!NK to the next, and there's no telling what's coming up this year, so with that I wish everyone luck and another congrats for Johan!
All the best,
