Nine-Year-Old Transgender Girl in Reno Declares Her Identity: VIDEO
Nevada Pride in Reno last Saturday gave nine-year-old transgender girl Cee Cee Ott a chance to express who she really is, reports KOLO TV.
Speaking to KOLO TV, Cee Cee said:
"I wanted to be a girl [when I was around three years old], but I couldn't because at the time I was a boy, so I had to be there and dress up like a boy. It was miserable."
After kindergarten, Cee Cee’s parents home-schooled her until they could decide what they needed to do to make her feel safe.
Nicole Ott, Cee Cee’s parent, says "we want our children to be happy and to be themselves and that's all we care about. We're not trying to make anyone be anything other than allowing them the space to figure out who they are and what they want from the world."
Cee Cee, who starts public school again in the fall, now aspires to be a transgender reassignment surgeon so that she can help other people like her.
