Why are you interested in Miss International Queen?
I have been following Miss International Queen for many years now, I think this is really a rare opportunity for transsexuals to take the image and voice in the Miss International Queen. I am in need of opportunities like Miss International Queen to devote my ability to spread to others, change the way I look at the world, transsexuals who always aspire to be recognized for their efforts and talents, a community through the success of an individual, that is why I am always interested in Miss International Queen 2018.
When did you realise that you were actually a woman or when did you feel like you wanted to be female?
From childhood I dreamed of dreams like I was wearing a fishtail dress, standing on stage with When I woke up, I knew I was definitely a woman, and not just a woman, I knew I would be a good and beautiful woman.
What was it like coming out to your family and friends? Did you family accept you? How did they react? Please explain.
It looks like you look at a tree that should be green but it becomes pink, everyone is strange but they do not know exactly how the tree was, is not a disease. And how to stop and turn it back to blue, until one day you are forced to accept because that pink is so beautiful! My family is the same, they also see the difference, see also the change and also the opposition, but then the love of parents plus the trust they give me over all, I I think I have a great family!
Do people outside your family treat you differently? Please explain.
You know school bullying happens everywhere, especially with people like us. It’s because being bullied, being bullied and insulted by bad words makes me stronger and more determined!
