I could not be happier mentally, physically, and socially with the life I live today. Transitioning was much tougher than I had expected. What's Working: Years passed and I met more transgender people, some of whom became best friends. I always knew that I was different. I have been gifted a re-birth. Nick Stevens from Washington, D.

This pain is better than the sheer torture of a melancholy existence where the brain is constantly searching for a body it can't find just yet.

My transgender immigrant journey is unique and not representative of all the struggles of our communities, but I hope to encourage everybody to aspire to a life of authenticity.
