Jenny’s story about the epic highs and lows of changing genders is truly inspiring. It’s clearly prevalent that Jenny’s transition was far from easy but ended up being well worth it. Even in the face of losing everything, Jenny persevered, both by herself and with others, to make it out on the other end. Through the difficult times, Jenny and her community were able to practice love and acceptance. A significant takeaway is that love will always prevail. The love and support Jenny felt guided her towards being her true self. Jenny’s story is one of millions, and it is our obligation as friends, family members, classmates, humans, whoever we are to allow love to win.
