On top of Kayla’s bucket list is to contribute to societal transformation—from one where oppression exists to one that is just, inclusive, and poverty-free. This was added to her list as she became a Development Communication practitioner, initially joining the civil service with a focus on education. The stint sparked in her an interest in the field which turned into a passion. She searched for experience and excitement in the formal teaching arena (and found it!) but later on became more impassioned in vouching for equitable educational opportunities to learners of all ages. She is currently taking her graduate studies in Nonformal Education and continues to advocate for inclusive and collaborative learning as a way to check that item in her bucket list. Kayla is based in Manila at the Hivos office.
