Support Kai's Medical Transition and Change a Life!
Organized by: Kai Britt
Hello! My name is Kai and I am transgender. It feels sort of selfish to ask for money, but I am in desperate need of help. Since I was seven years old I have known I was different. My body never quite felt like my own and I've struggled with severe depression, self-esteem, suicidal ideation, and various eating disorders because of this. I do not belong in the body I currently have, and am reminded constantly of this fact.
In a world where society is so binary, my identity is dependent on how I look. But how I look is not who I am. People assuming my gender and treating me accordingly takes such a toll on my emotional health that I feel like I am constantly struggling just to get through the day. It has been a struggle to grow into myself and I'm proud to say that I've come a long way, but there's still so far to go. Dysphoria, or the intense unease and even hatred with one's physical form, plagues my every moment. I understand that part of this comes from my own perceptions, but I know that if I looked the way I've always known I should, I would be much more comfortable in this world and be able to live to my full potential. Depression has affected my grades, my passions, and even my relationships with other people in the world. Inside I am a deeply motivated person with goals of making a difference, but it's hard to stay oriented when I'm so deeply upset.
I truly believe that medically transitioning will make me a happier and healthier person able to positively influence other people. And I have plans to live life helping people who struggle with the same problems as I have now. I hope to both spread awareness and greatly reduce the feelings of isolation and depression in transgender and gender non-conforming youth. My greatest wish is to help reduce the tragic trend of suicide in young trans youth. But in order to get there, I need some help myself. I have already been evaluated by medical professionals and endocrinologists and they have no problem with me transitioning. The problem is that I have no money due to paying for other health ailments, schooling, and not having financial support from my parents.
Should you choose to support my cause, I would be immensely grateful. I want you to know that anything helps and everything makes a huge difference. Thank you for considering, I hope to see you all in a bigger and brighter future soon!
