The echo of a cosmopolitan Hellenic era as described by the Alexandrine poet expresses that “fluidity” is a vital point of departure in the modem world. Goals and journeys are ends in themselves; an endless process of self-determination and the pursuit of completion. This article is a personal testimony of a transformative learning journey. It is an attempt to track and document important moments, incidents, and thoughts in a “self-reflexive” project illustrating the changeability and mutability of self-identification process.
