I was born in Hunan, China. At six months old, I was adopted and brought to the United States, where I was raised in a small town outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

I came out as trans when I was 12, socially transitioning throughout middle school and high school. With the support of a local group for queer and trans teens, I found my voice and began sharing my story. 

Through Instagram, Huffington Post Articles, and MTV Voices, I documented my medical transition. I found a community of trans men and queer and trans people of color during my journey. 

In 2017, I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelors of Sociology. My activism centers the narratives of trans people, particularly trans people of color.
