She also dished out some sage advice for trans youth out there:

“One piece of advice I would give young trans folk is to center yourself in your experiences but don’t be limited by only your experiences. Learn more about those around you and figure out how to build coalitions and link up with people who are equally as marginalized. Being different and being seen as ‘other’ in this country doesn’ thave to be an isolating experience, it can be an experience that brings folks together.”
