Translatinx Network is proud to share the first of our 2019 Resiliency Stories, beginning with TGNC Leadership Space Graduate, Noni. She writes, “My name is Noni. I am a thirty-two year old trans woman, originally from Nigeria. Being part of the TGNC Leadership Space has shown me the importance of community. The TGNC Leadership Space is very welcoming, and I have learned that we as members have more in common than we know. The act of proclaiming one’s trans-ness in a world that says we should not exist is a major act of self love. Intersectionality is common in the US and I believe we should have more resources that serves every detail behind the person.” We are very proud to help share Noni’s story, and looking forward to sharing more stories to come.
