Nuet Oppong is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Nuet O.
Hello my name is Nuet. I am an 18 year old trans woman from London england. I’ve blurred my picture for safety reasons. I was raised in a strictly Islamic, black african family. From a very young age I realised I wasn’t comfortable. The person I was on the outside, never reflected the person I was on the inside. Every time I tried to make those two different representations of myself match, my father would abuse me physically, by burning my chest with an iron, beating me up, locking me in my bedroom. He wanted me to be a son, but I was trying to be a daughter. I fought so much with myself, and I hated myself so much. I tried to commit suicide 2 months ago, just before my 18th birthday but luckily I got to the hospital in time. While I was there, I spoke to a nurse who advised me to be true to myself. I was so moved by her words, and I decided to be the woman I felt I was inside. Ramadan began and I tried to tell my parents I wanted to transition, and that I wasn’t sure about my stance with my religion. I was met with a lot of violence, and I ran away from home to one of my friends place. I’ve been trying to get a job, but the coronavirus outbreak makes it so difficult for me to do this. I don’t even have my passport, or anything. I have literally £2 to my name. I was hoping that I could get some support to get myself a car so I could start working a delivery driver job, and have some type of savings to start building my life up. Please help me. You would literally be saving my life. Thank you so much.
