I began vlogging on YouTube back in 2012, initially just as a video diary of my gender transition, lots of trans people were doing it, but there was nobody my age and I wanted to remedy that . What has happened since then has been an unexpected and wonderful surprise, People began to leave such kind and supportive comments and my subscriber base grew. I then began to use my vlogs to share my entire story, my recovery from drugs and alcohol and my ongoing journey of learning to manage my mental health challenges, all which play into my ongoing transition from female to male. Doing so has greatly helped me in my recovery and also introduced me to wonderful people all over the world whom I consider true and dear friends.

As part of my recovery, I live a very spiritual approach to my daily maintenance of my sobriety and mental wellness and this is applied to all aspects of my life. This means that I live one day at a time and trust in a higher power who I hand my life over to. For those not spiritually minded this probably sounds very strange but it works for me. Since living this way my life has opened up in the most wonderful ways and so I completely trust it. This means that I just do what I love, which is sharing my story in various forms and I don’t worry so much about the end result, I trust that the universe will unfold as it needs to if I get out of the way.

Being very visible online has led to other fantastic opportunities, to give talks and presentations and to meet with people and groups to offer support and advice. This has now become something I have become incredibly passionate about and something I would love to make my full time career. I am studying for a degree in psychology and whilst I very much enjoy that and it feeds into the vlogs and support and advice work I do, it is media sharing, talking and writing that I feel really drawn to.

At the moment everything I do I do not receive any money for, I volunteer my time and when I do give talks only my travel and board is paid, I do not receive an income. I have been unable to work for some years now, due to my poor mental health and due to going through surgical interventions in my gender transition. I am in such better health now and almost at the end of the surgical part of my journey but I still have to be very careful in order to maintain my mental well-being. I very much want to earn my own living rather than receive state benefits but an hourly set job is still not in my capability due to the fickle nature of my mental health. At the moment, living flexibly is what I need so that on days where I am not well, I can simplify things in order to take care of myself.

Working from home, creating vlogs and writing, giving online support and attending conferences when I am well enough seems to suit my mental health, it’s a flexible routine that works for me. Thanks to the support and friendship given to me from doing this, I am at last starting to be able to see that I have a gift worthy of sharing and of use to others and I feel this is where my focus should be. Now I just need to find a way for this to make me a living! I have begun to now put my story into written form, in the hope that if I can become published it may lead to a way to make money to allow me to just continue what I already do with my video creations and support. I have no desire to be rolling in money, it’s more important to me to feel like I am doing something meaningful but of course I still need to earn a living.

A friend suggested this site and when something is suggested it is usually for a reason, my higher power works in mysterious ways! Therefore I decided to sign up and create a page and just see what happens. This page, like me, is a work in process and so overtime I will adapt to it and add rewards and so on, if and when people decide they would like to support me in my mission.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for taking the time to read this
