My Name Would Be

Hello, my name isn’t important. I live in Detroit, Michigan and go to high school right now. At the age of 13 I discovered that I was transgender and bisexual. I was very scared at the beginning. I had started football, but quit halfway through due to my new feelings. When I turned 14 I started having nightmares about my sexuality, I dreamed of people making fun of me for who I was. This sent me into a depression that still resonates today. When I turned 15 I was already depressed and scared for what would happen if I acted like myself. Now I’m 16 going on 17 and my depression has slowly stopped. I dream everyday about how life would be as a woman. When I move out and into college I believe that I will start hormone treatment and then get a change, if you know what I mean.

If I were a girl, my name would be Juliet.
