I have a hard time gaining weight so it’s just my genetic predisposition that prevents me from getting a curvier figure. I am very satisfied with how HRT has affected me mentally though. I am so much more content with my appearance. I don’t suffer as much gender dysphoria.

Obviously the process of transitioning differs in every country. I feel like I can share an experience that hadn’t been fully shared at the time thus helping other girls in a similar situation.
Only a couple of months after I saw my endocrinologist Gigi made the video ‘I Am Transgender’. I was so happy that my idol was going through the exact same thing as me! The woman who inspired me to transition was transitioning herself. Thank you Gigi.
Once I told them though, it was a matter of easing into being myself around them. It was a bit hard on everyone I think. Also finding the courage to go shopping for female clothes when you look like a teenage boy is nerve racking!
