Where to begin?
I am a highly educated, above average intelligence, extremely motivated, beautiful women. I am honest to a fault: I am a sincere, compassionate, and devoted person. I stand by my convictions and I do not waiver in the face of adversity. I welcome a challenge.
Life has never been kind to me by the standards of most however; it has made me far wiser then my years imply. As a child I was confused, abandoned at the age of 7, and abused in every way possible by those who were supposed to love me over all else. By the age of 7 I knew more about hatred and indifference then most in our society. By age 21, I had been raped, stabbed, shot, run over, jumped, legally deceased twice, robbed and was an alcoholic. Also by the same age, I had been working for 14 years, paying taxes for 6, had my second degree, been in Naval Intelligence, been an EMT/ Volunteer Firefighter for 5 years, married, and subsequently divorced. I was forced to grow up fast; some was my own doing and some was encouraged by the actions/ in-actions of others. Through it all I have been made a better person and I am grateful to have had the life I have had. Challenging circumstances create only those who are up to the challenge to become stronger people.
I live as the woman I was always meant to be. I do not know why I was born in the "wrong body", but I am sure there must be a reason. Perhaps I needed to see life through he eyes of a man to be a better woman. Who knows? The reason for this is irrelevant; soon my exterior will match my interior and all will be in balance.
To date I have three college degrees; anthropology, psychology, and Emergency Medical Services. My goal was to attend medical school; I have declined three offers. My goal now is to attend law school. Currently I work for a regional transportation and logistics company; we specialize in oilfield construction and fluid transportation. I have learned every road was once rough before it was smooth; my road to self acceptance was a rough one, but now I am happier then I ever imagined I would, or could be.
