Andreja Pejic is a Model for Transgender Youth

News that the Serbian-born, Australian supermodel Andreja Pejic has come out as a transgender woman on social media has been buzzing around various media sources for the last few days. But what we commend here at SheRa Mag is that Pejic came out not only to be truthful to herself and the world, but also to be a role model for transgender youth. She writes these words of wisdom on her Facebook post:  “I would also like to reach out to all the gender non-conforming youth out there… As a transgender woman I hope to show you that after transition (a life-saving process) one can be happy and successful in their new chapter without having to alienate their past.”

Here is Pejic’s entire Facebook post (underneath a selfie, of course):
