Reflecting on my EdD journey, I am reminded of the determined 16-year-old version of myself who set her sights on becoming an academic doctor. Being a young, black female student in South London, I knew the odds were stacked against me. But, with my Nigerian parent's nickname for me, "Doctor Kanayo," ringing in my ears, I remained undaunted.
Doctorate in Education (EdD) – Reflections
In this post I share my 'A' graded reflective statement on the first year of my EdD at UCL, Institute of Education. It is a personal and informative account of my experience and would be a great read for anyone who is interested in furthering their studies at this level; particularly my fellow teachers and action-researchers. I am transparent and critically review my experience, including the challenges so that this can be used as a learning resource and reference point for all academics.
