It’s time to let go and be truly free when I was younger I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender. I am NikkieTutorials, and I am Nikkie. I am me. We don’t need labels. But if we are going to put a label on it, yes, I am transgender. But at the end of the day, I am me, by the age of seven or eight I fully wore girl’s clothes only and it felt amazing.”
