“Teaching, for me, is not just a career but an odyssey with continuous learning, through classrooms, from peer educators and the students I am working with. One strategy I always apply with my students is co-creative teaching and learning togive them agency over their learning and helps to develop self-direction, confidence, creativity and critical thinking skills. Learning from different perspectives from diverse backgrounds while I am teaching is an honor, privilege and joy for me.”
