Career Resilience with Jann Danyluk
27. Alec Cook - Research Assistant, Student and part of the Transgender community

“I was finally able to live as who I was and be open and be proud of that.”

Alec has packed a lot of living and resilience into his young life. At an early age, he struggled with gender identification. He was born a female biologically but came to realize that he is a male. Alec talks about not having the language, or role models, to assist him in understanding his identity in this world. Aided by a close-knit family, teachers and mentors and his own determination, Alec became the person he was meant to be. Alec is currently a student in the Psychology program at Western University in London Ontario and a Research Assistant at Parkwood Institute. He is also part of the Global MINDS Collective an innovative mental health organization started in London Ontario.
