ROXANA BERNARDE

27 MEXICO

@jaibernarde

“Friendly, sweet and loving are the words I’d use to describe myself. I work in the local fashion industry and enjoy socialising and going out. One of my greatest passions is dance, as I am a trained ballet dancer, which I’ve practiced ever since I was younger. My journey has been a long one and the most difficult part was learning to accept myself for who I am without caring what the naysayers may have to say. We live in society that judges books by their covers, and growing up in Mexico makes it even harder. My gender discovery came at an early age but I suppressed it out of fear . I really wish we could have more visible trans activists around here but there’s still a lot of ignorance and judgement towards trans women. There’s still a whole lot of work to be done, but through all the difficulties I often manage to find joy and solace in the fact that I am a free spirited person who is able to live in her truth.”
