The Handless Maiden – Transformative Education

I wrote this personal statement once because I wanted to apply for a PhD program in sustainability education. Writing this was a nice exercise in using a story analysis to structure my statement. One funny detail is that I wrote this before I discovered the controversy around Osho. My parents used to show me his books but never told me about the rest. I decided to leave the parts about him in, because I referred to their content without heavy any kind of contextual association.
