A Transgender's Dream

Hi my name is Camila and I am a 36 year old transgender girl originally from Mexico. I came to the US 18 years ago following a dream and escaping the discrimination and bullying that comes with being transgender in Mexico. Despite having completed a college degree, as a transgender girl very few opportunities were made available to me. Slowly I realized that just because i was safe here did not mean things were going to be easier. I've struggled to make ends meet ever since. Years ago I realized I was never going to be able to afford to complete my physical transition without resorting to things my religion and values could not endorse. My confidence suffered greatly not only from not achieving my professional goals, but from being stuck in a body that did not reflect who I felt I was. Despite my desire, willingness and ability to work hard i never had a chance, and I had to accept my path as a transgender would always involve sacrifice. The impact to my confidence from this has been far more damaging than I ever thought it would be and I became increasingly isolated to the point where I became scared of going out and was finally diagnosed Agoraphobic in recent years. What I realized is that I am so preoccupied on what I look like as a flat chested woman that it prohibits my ability to live normally. Thinking I would never be able to augment only made everything more depressing....... But today is the dawn of a new day filled with hope and excitement, for my friend told me about this site and the real possibility that a random group of thoughtful strangers could come together with the funding for the breast augmentation surgery I've been longing for my whole adult life. While I know it wont solve all my problems,I know it will make it much easier for me to leave my home and finally feel and look like the woman I truly am. Thank you all for reading my story and please help me make my dream come true.
