Doing this work is the fulfillment of a life-long passion for me, and I'm grateful every day that I get to do my part to make the world a little more knowledgeable, introspective, and compassionate about sexuality. Being nominated for the Sex Educator of the Year award is a thrill and an honor,” McDevitt said.
