An ex-US marine has shared his//her incredible transformation from a bearded, hairy-chested bloke into a silky headed blonde beauty.
Sona Avedian, 33, was assigned male at birth and lived as a bushy bearded chap called Matthew until his/her transition three years ago.
He knew he wanted to be a girl since the age of four, but growing up in a conservative family, it was a secret he expected to take to his grave.
He enlisted in the US marine and served six combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
To fit in and appear ‘normal’, he married and had a daughter, but when he got tired of pretending, he had come out as a transgender in 2012 and began taking hormone therapy.
Later he underwent complex surgery and stopped eating junk food to lose the excess weight he had gained over the years as a soldier.
He divorced his wife in 2013, and although they still speak it was a difficult time for both.
He/She maintains a good relationship with his 5 year old daughter.
Hian! I don’t know if there is something in their water over there that brings out the ‘Caitlyn’ in them.
