Transgender Teen Shares Powerful Message

2 Comments | Posted

Corey Maison said she always knew in her heart that she was a female.

The 14-year-old transgender teen describes herself as unique, outgoing, funny and has dreams of one day becoming a supermodel. But for now, Corey's main focus is sharing her story of how she's overcome bullying, in the hopes of supporting others who face the same obstacle.
"We're not a threat," Corey wrote to ABC News. "We are just like any other kids. We only want people to accept and love us for who we are."

    Many best wishes to Corey, her parents, her family, and her community. And HOORAY for her current principal. It will be a great day in this country when all transgender children, teens, and adults are accepted and loved like Corey is now.
