My Story: My name is Jasmine Vine A name which I picked for myself when I was becoming the wonderful transgender woman I am today. The first time I remember feeling suicidal, I was 7 years old. My home life was filled with violence, my parents often chose drugs over food, and I was already a social outcast, being called a “fa*got” in kindergarten. None of my family members had jobs, and they taught me how to get the most out of government systems, and to steal. When I turned 14, which I never thought I would, I started documenting my transition on YouTube, and this was actually quite popular. I often received feedback saying I have helped people find their courage, come out, and feel confident in themselves. Throughout my darkest times, this kept me alive. I’ve always had a deep desire to help people, and knowing I could do that, got me through times I didn’t think I would get through. In saying this, somewhere down the line, I lost sight of my true purpose/calling. It’s not possible to shorten my story enough to fit this small space, so I’ll zoom over a couple things: I was addicted to marijuana. I was diagnosed with Depression, Bipolar, Generalised Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and god knows what else… I hit my lowest low, spending some time in a psychiatric facility medicated out of my mind. I lost both of my parents. Basically, my brain became my worst enemy. My mind was a warzone, and I was enemy number one. Many years of psychology and change work later, reading, psychologists, psychiatrists, counsellors, working on myself and most recently investing in coaching and change work, and now, I have reconnected with my values and my purpose! I have levelled up so quickly, my head is spinning, and I am ready to make up for lost time! I have decided to pursue my entrepreneurial and spiritual dreams, and I’m dedicated to changing as many lives as I can along my journey. I’m ready to put on my cape, pick up my crown, and take over the world! I never thought I could become the person I have created today, but I did, and I am! I want people to know that they can experience A. LOT. OF. CR*P… And can still turn it around and become a confident, powerful change maker! I designed the life I am living, and I continue to design it every day. Ultimately my purpose in life is to help other people live their lives by design. I like to post content to inspire other trans people out there to keep going. To know it can always get better, and to help them make it better!
