Sexual Health Educator
Although a new member of the Saleema Noon Sexual Health Educators team, Rayka has been involved in the field of sexual health education for almost ten years in her role as a sexual health educator, sexologist and cultural advisor. She has a BA in Sociology and Critical Studies in Sexuality from UBC, a Master of Sexology degree from Curtin University’s School of Public Health in Australia, and a Marketing Communication degree from Istanbul Bilgi University, Turkey. As a former consultant to the Turkish Ministry of Justice’s Reproductive Health Program, Rayka taught sexuality education and gender studies courses at Yıldız Technical University and Istanbul Kultur University. A sought after speaker on human sexuality, cultural perceptions of sexuality, gender issues and working with youth, Rayka is excited to bring her skills to the elementary classroom. When not teaching, she can be found dreaming about being a comedian when she grows up.
