Identity is a major aspect of growing up. It helps us express individuality and defend it through the many obstacles of childhood, adolescence and adulthood. These challenges only serve to make us stronger, that is if they don’t kill us. One such challenge is tertiary education. For gender diverse people, education will often end with high school, due to the uncomfortable social reality that transitioning causes and the will to not be discouraged by a community, inherently ignorant of gender diversity. The end of high school is usually a chance to break away and transition with a degree of control over the people who will be involved in that process.
