Episode Description

Resilience and dedication pave the path for those willing to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. In this episode of Planet Classroom, Orb, the show’s virtual host, unites the creator of the acclaimed film, One Leg In One Leg Out (now screening on the Planet Classroom Network YouTube Channel), along with international youth voices to discuss the misconceptions about sex workers and the trans community. What happens when Iman, a transgender woman, wants to become a social worker so she can help other girls in her position stay safe and turn away from that way of life? Viewers will find themselves moved with a new open perspective on survival and what it feels like to be “different.”
