Janet Mock, a popular editor and blogger at People.com, recently sat down with writer Kierna Mayo to discuss a recent article that was published about her in Marie Claire.
Excerpt via GLAAD:
After high school graduation, many of my classmates were throwing big graduation parties and buying new cars. Those kids went looking for good times and great memories, but I was desperately searching for one thing only: a chance to be in the right body for the first time in my entire life.
Two weeks after the surgery, I was in class at the University of Hawaii, finally focusing on something other than my gender. Four years later, I left Hawaii, a beautiful, confident woman armed with a journalism degree and bound for graduate school and a career in New York City.
The article also goes into Mock’s trip to Thailand, where she had one of her final surgeries, as well as, telling her mother about her impending decision.
