ISIS KING: I See Myself In Her

In as much as there are tons of transgender persons to emulate in the world, there is one woman that has always stood out for me.
Isis King.

Her life has always been an inspiration to me. I remember watching the videos on YouTube of her being interviewed by Tyra Banks (who is also a huge inspiration to me) and getting teary at how much her life is similar to mine. Its amazing. She talks of how she feels of her **** and I can't agree more. I really can't. And that's just but one of the things that she talks of in her interview(s) with Tyra that just make me all teary and smile and hope.

When she was told that she's going to be sponsored by Tyra and Marci Bowers to have her surgery done, I only had one thing in mind: I wish the same would happen to me.

Go to YouTube and check out the videos. I swear, I would sound the same if it were me!

Yes, I saw that show. I've been trying to figure out how to get an appearance on The Tyra Banks Show every since. ;)

Of course, it wasn't just because Isis was on Tyra's show. It had to do with the fact that she was on Tyra's other show, America's Next Top Model. And that's when she was pre-op! She did really well too, except that her lack of confidence hurt her.

I remember the episode when she was eliminated. Tyra always talks to the girl before she leaves. And she said, "beautiful girl." I was crying my eyes out. Isis was such an inspiration!

And even better for you because she's a lot closer to your age than to mine. :)

@Amy K Won't have much time...Tyra's show is going off the air in 2011

@Lindsay used to have a podcast that is on hiatus at the moment and one of the shows me and my partner Renee did was an interview with Isis. She is a sweetheart and a class act.
