“Transitioning improved my life”

As part of LGBTQIA+ History Month, Verve is showcasing some inspirational student and staff stories

By Rebecca Jones

I was aware I was trans from 3. It took me many years of repression and hiding my true identity before I could finally be my true self at 17 after an unsuccessful attempt at coming out at 15.

Transitioning improved my life in ways I could never have imagined. Being able to look in the mirror and see a face reflected I didn’t hate has been life-changing.

Being able to start hormones even if done through private options has been amazing to have my body finally changing the right way.
