by her high school as their prom queen.
Meet 17 year old Angie Esteban, who not only has persevered through a transition that has been bumpy at times, but on April 18 became Salinas High's first trans feminine prom queen.
The road to it started several months ago during homecoming when she was a volunteer on the senior class homecoming dance committee.
She saw the homecoming court girls during a pep rally and thought, "I'd like to do that."
Several friends got together, got her nominated, and the campaign to get her elected started earnest with the enthusiastic support of her classmates.
Angie's post graduation plans are to attend college and become a contestant on America's Next Top Model.
