From a young age, Laura Kok showed an eagerness for learning and at university this curiosity only grew. During her bachelor’s in Media and Culture, she was introduced to the field of Gender Studies and it was love at first sight. Her field of interest is Queer Theory and Trans Studies. She is currently working hard to finish her research master in Gender Studies. Laura is part of the organization of TranScreen, the Amsterdam Transgender Filmfestival, which unites her background in critical theory with her love for film. For this year’s edition, she is working on programming forf youth. She is very dedicated to nurturing queer and trans* youth and helping them grow and flourish. When Laura is not working on her academics or for TranScreen, she spends her time teaching the children at her children’s choir, for which she also has a big passion.
