REAL LIFE

Hard To Believe But 17-Year-Old Emma Was Born In A Male Body!

Date December 27, 2018 13:32

Transgender people have a gender identity that doesn't match their assigned sex. Many of them live feeling that there's something wrong with their bodies from an early age. What's even worse is that they can't understand what exactly. Therefore, most times they realize their true essence when they're older. Many of them never open up to their family and friends because of the fear of being rejected. In most cases, they experience severe stress connected with not being accepted.

But Emma Ellingsen's story is an exception. At the age of 9, she came out to her family as a transgender. They supported her and now she's a popular blogger, model, and happy person.

I look at it as work, because I do make and try to make money, but I also do it for my own pleasure.

Emma knew that not everyone on the internet would be ready to accept her. The girl expected criticism. But she's glad that she has inspired some people to come out and be themselves like she did.
