How do you, Elian, deal with mental health especially due to social expectations?

E08 “Self-Acceptance (Part 1)”

Understanding mental health in youth, especially those in the transgender community, is a very essential discussion. Our student Zehlia asked the right questions!

What was it like with your friends and your family when you came out to them and having them accept you for who you are?

For my grandma, my grandfather, for example, it's not something that's possible yet. I actually don't push my grandfather for accepting stuff like that. I'm happy that if he can be with me in the same room, and talking and sharing dinner.
