Bruce Jenner has truly had an extraordinary life. He is a world famous Olympian and father of 10 children. It turns out that all this time he was feeling alone and caged, he was living in a wrong body. Now he is making a brave step towards a new life as a woman and for this he truly does deserve another gold medal.
The majority of Americans are still learning about what it means to be transgender so it is not an easy decision to choose to live like one. A big part of one’s identity is acceptance so for many it takes a great deal of soul searching and time.
However, Bruce Jenner isn’t the first high-profile transgender person to open up about their story, but he is a great lesson to another person who will learn they don’t need to wait until they’re 65 to fully embrace who they were born to be.
