Courtlin Stoker


I have lived, worked and made a positive change in eight countries including Honduras, India, South Africa, and the DRC. Through my experiences abroad, working on several different types of projects, I have gained significant insight into the world of international development. Some of the projects I have worked on involve capacity building, youth in development, and women's empowerment. I received my bachelors from University of California, Santa Barbara and recently obtained my masters from the University of Cambridge in Development Studies. My goal is to bring a more sustainable and constructive approach into the field of international development through my expertise in development theory alongside with my practical experience. More specifically, I plan on having a positive impact in the areas of poverty alleviation, community cohesion, women’s empowerment, and sustainable livelihoods.
