    Story

    Since I was young I knew that there was something different about me, I wasn't like the other 'boys' I was more to be frank feminine. When I was 11 I realised this fully but I repressed it to the deep back of my mind to seem normal and not cause any trouble but this was the worst thing I could have done.
    Over the next 7 years I was heavily depressed because of this thing I repressed, I wasn't accepting who I was and as I grew older it got worse, I attempted multiple times in my own life without success.

    October 2016 has now come around, I'm 18 and have finished school and have finally come to accept myself for who I am.
    On the 16th of October 2016 I came out to my parents as trans and it was the Joint best and worst decision I ever made, my mother showed to be accepting but was everything but, she was in denial badly and as a result removed my from her home on the 31st of November.

    For months I had no direction or no clue where in life was for me, I came to terms with myself and was happy about that but my life was still miserable.

    So now it's July 2017, where are we?
    I'm a more motivated person, I have plans for the future and and what I want to achieve in life but to get there I'm going to need help, I start college in September and after that will be going to uni to study games art.

    I also suffer from Dystonia, a neurological disability that causes me to have wild muscle spasms and contractions, this has made getting a job hard but i don't plan on it stopping or slowing down my dreams.

    Art has been an amazing outlet for me and always has been, i want to move on to digital art to chase my dreams of becoming a concept artist and working in the games development field but without the equipment that is a long way off, with costs of college and just general living it's not going to be possible for quite some time.

    I cannot put into words or describe how hard life had been for me as it has been for many others also, I really appreciate anyone who reads this or considers helping.

    Much love Xx
