For me as someone who hasn’t decided anything about what they want with their medical transition yet, it was very confusing and overwhelming. I had no idea what surgeons I liked or disliked or what I thought of anything at all. Overall I had a great experience at the conference, not only because of the speakers, groups and free stuff, but also because I really felt part of the community. It reminded me why I was drawn to my trans* identity in the first place and made me feel more confident than ever in the path I have chosen. I felt so lucky to have gone to this conference. It was a great way to end high school.
