Nicole comes from a small town in Montana. She knew at a very young age that she was born into the wrong body. As a child she was vocal about her gender identity. Her parents were very accepting, and allowed her to wear girls’ clothing and never questioned her desire to play with female-assigned toys, such as Barbies. Growing up in Montana was difficult. Outside of the family, people did not understand her, and she was constantly teased and harassed. It made her only more determined to fully transition into a woman.
