  • - [Jamie] Dear BuzzFeed,

  • when I was four, I just thought I was like any other boy.

  • As I grew a little older,

  • I started realizing I was different.

  • (soft music)

  • For awhile I believed that I was just

  • a late developer.

  • By the time I realized this wasn't going to happen,

  • I was seven or eight.

  • At this age, I did everything I could to fit in

  • and be seen as one of the boys.

  • I wore all boys clothes,

  • was happy when people used male pronouns for me

  • when out in public, and I got my hair cut short.

  • A combination of secondary school, age 11,

  • and puberty forced me into thinking

  • I had to accept the way I was physically

  • and I tried to fit in as female during my early teens.

  • I could never find clothes I liked,

  • felt uncomfortable in anything I wore,

  • and disliked my hair being long.

  • When I was 16, I watched a documentary on Channel 4

  • about a trans guy.

  • The way he was feeling and how he had felt

  • flicked a switch and I suddenly had a name

  • for how I was feeling

  • and realized that I actually live as who I felt I was.

  • Between my first and second year at college

  • I came out as transgender

  • and went back as Jamie for my A Levels.

  • I told my mum first,

  • who in turn told my dad any my brother.

  • I then told my group of friends

  • and finally my girlfriend,

  • who was my best friend at the time.

  • I'm so grateful that they were all amazingly supportive

  • and over time this increased

  • as they understood more and more.

  • My mum and I went to speak to my GP

  • about being referred to a gender identity clinic

  • so that I could pursue hormones and eventually surgery.

  • The day I started testosterone was incredibly exciting.

  • My dad picked up my prescription for me

  • and it was sitting waiting for me

  • when I got home from college.

  • Hey, so I just got home and saw this.

  • As the weeks and months went by,

  • I noticed more and more changes.

  • I've had a definite voice drop in the last month.

  • Now my muscles are more defined

  • and they are bigger.

  • It's my voice.

  • It's breaking as well.

  • I've also got peach fuzz beard going on.

  • (laughs)

  • All these changes made me feel

  • so much more comfortable with myself,

  • and as grateful and happy as I was to be on hormones,

  • I knew I needed top surgery.

  • Six months later I had the surgery.

  • The recovery was uncomfortable and frustrating.

  • It took a couple months for me

  • to start properly seeing the full effects

  • and for the benefits of having a flat chest.

  • I'm super happy with my chest.

  • It's completely settled now

  • and the only thing that's changing

  • is my scars are continuing to fade.

  • I'm really happy with where they're at now

  • but they seem to just keep getting lighter,

  • which is pretty awesome.

  • Now, a little over three years later,

  • I still feel grateful for my chest all the time.

  • The positive impact that it's had on my life

  • is indescribable.

  • I'm at a stage in my life now where I feel content

  • and so much more comfortable

  • with myself and with my body.

  • My self-esteem and confidence has increased massively

  • and I feel a sense of freedom and acceptance

  • with who I am now.

  • Something that made everything easier in the beginning

  • was having a support network.

  • I was incredibly fortunate to have strong support

  • from my friends and family.

  • If I were to advise anyone who was just starting out

  • or about to start their transition,

  • I would say that patience will be your best friend.

  • Support is crucial from wherever you can get it,

  • and concentrate on the little things

  • and what you can change now.

  • This is a hard process that at times will feel impossible,

  • and impossibly slow,

  • but you will get there one day.

  • (soft music)

  • (electronic music)
