He once shared

“I hate when people tell me I can’t do something. If you want to get me upset. Tell me that I can’t and I will do whatever it takes to prove you wrong.”

This 39-year-old fitness icon from Miami entered the field of bodybuilding in 1999. This was much before he actually transitioned into a man.

He recalls that he used to wear dresses and skirts while growing up. But in his twenties, he realized that he is very much like a man rather than women.

He said

“I felt masculine you know like that was just the way that I was and it wasn’t until I was into my twenties that I really had language for it and when I got the language for it, I started doing the research and I found that I could transition.

“My transition really came from trying to live my life a certain way.”
