FOR YOUNG TEENS OUT THERE LOOKING FOR TRAND ROLE MODELS WHO DO YOU THINK BEST SUITS THIS ROLE WITH SOCIAL MEDIA BEING A BIT SHALLOW AT TIMES
The rise of trans activists on social media, trans social media influencers becoming celebrities, and big brands capitalizing on society’s obsession with gender debates makes it difficult to tell who actually has your best interests and heart in mind.
While the internet can be a great resource for trans people, there is no singular trans community here or IRL and it is not free from people targeting ads at us.
Don’t confuse gender capitalists on the internet for the activists and friends who show up in the court room, on the streets, and in the waiting room for you.
Protect your energy.
WHO ARE YOUR HEROES
WHO WAS YOUR FIRST CRUSH
Stockard Channing as Betty Rizzo in Grease
HOW DID U GET INTO DANCING
I was super hyper as a kid, and I was constantly making up dances and performances in my backyard. So, my mom threw me in a jazz, tap, and ballet class.
WHAT MAKES YOU THE HAPPIEST RIGHT NOW
My partner and step-son
YOUR BODY IS AMAZING ANY WORKOUT TIPS YOU SUGGEST
Thank you! Don't cheat on proper form. Put the time, energy, and money upfront to learn how to lift weights properly or else you'll be paying the price later with injuries and medical bills. My results are from strict form and working with weights that appropriately fatigue my muscles.
WHAT IS NEXT FOR ASHLEY IN 2019
Learning to say no to old habits that no longer serve purpose in my life.
