Hello, everyone! I am so excited about this course because Gender and Development is very close to my heart. Being a teacher plus a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community, it is very essential to have topics like these, being a catalyst for gender equality most especially in the field of education. I always believe that gender preference must not be a hindrance to reach for your dreams and through this course, I hope that gender stereotypes will be lessened and eventually erased.
