Jenn [talking about her childhood]: I had no one to talk to talk about [feeling like I was a girl], no one to turn to. But I’m pretty sure that I told [someone at my] school. I went to a counselor and I was having huge emotional feelings and I didn’t know what to do with them.
There was this girl, Olanza, and I wanted to be just like her, and I knew it was a weird thing to be thinking. I wanted to be just like this girl. I looked up to her. I envied her. To feel that way was really confusing.
