LGBTQ Advocate & Peer Coach
My goal in life is to inspire and motivate people to be the best version of themselves!
My name is Amanda Watson. My friends and family call me Mandy. For most of my childhood, I struggled with feeling "different" and alone. I did not have the words to describe how I felt. In my era, there were not really many people that were public about being transgender.
As a youth, television negatively portrayed transgender and gender non-conforming people, like jokes, misfits, and the mentally ill. I hope to break that stereotype and provide others with inspiration, motivation, and understanding.
