Girl Becomes First Trans Cheerleader At Her School
When we transfols have the opportunity to become our true selves, once the gender issue is out of the way, we can focus our attention and awesomeness into fulfilling whatever we wish to do.
In Denair High School senior Amy Fuentes' case it was to become the first ever trans cheerleader at her school.
"When I was first trying out for the cheer squad, it wasn't like I'm going to be the first transgender girl," Fuentes said in a PEOPLE magazine interview. "I was just trying out because I wanted to be a cheerleader, and I wanted to dance and cheer."
While she has been accepted as the girl she is by her classmates and the cheer squad, she had a rougher road to acceptance with her mother. She ended up moving in with another cheerleader because of that lack of maternal acceptance.
But the good news is that she and her mother have been resolving their differences, and she plans to move back home soon.
Congrats Amy! Hope your senior year is one that continues to be blessings filled for you and continued good luck in your life journey.
