This is me. My name is Gemma and I’m a transgender woman.
When the first picture was taken, I didn’t believe in myself. I lived a charmed life, but I was never able to achieve anything more then fleeting happiness. That was two years ago.
Now, I am living my dreams. I have a successful career at an amazing workplace. I moved out of my parent’s house. I’m living full time as a happy and proud woman, unashamed of my past and excited for my future.
Anyone who feels like they can’t achieve their dreams needs to listen: You dreams are valid, and possible. Commit to achieving your goals and don’t let your past hold you back. When I started down this road I was terrified and never believed I’d be able to survive transition, but look at me now!
I’m 27 and I’m just starting my life. And I couldn’t be happier. :D
