As the new transition from male to female began for seventeen year old Alex Hile, a new person started to grow and rise up on social media. Hile, in many ways, is a still image of confidence and bravery for her fans within multiple social media platforms.

Although Hile is typically showered with praise and compliments in her comment sections, once in awhile, a negative comment tends to pop up.

“I usually just ignore it the haters and try to be as positive as possible,’’ Hile said.

During her childhood years, Hile struggled to fit in, due to the fact that she knew that one day, she wanted to come out and become transgender. As time went by, Hille began feeling more and more comfortable in her own skin.

While so many things around her happened, Hile still kept quiet and to herself. By the time she finally realized it was time to embrace it, she was in highschool. The moment she resurfaced, was when her transition truly began.

Sadly, there was some hate and ignorance all around her, but she turned her back on it and kept on. Despite hateful words from haters such as “it’s wrong,” or “how unacceptable,” being thrown at her, admiringly, Hile never let such negativity throw her off.

“Once I broke the news, my parents were so supportive. I greatly appreciated their love and acceptance, but at the end of the day, it only matters that I am transitioning. Because my new life is just beginning,” Hile said.
