Getting Better All The Time

The response from the June 2 interview with NH1 News was overwhelmingly positive. I was contacted with praise from as far west as Montana and as far east as Great Britain. The Caitlyn Jenner Vanity Faire cover and tv interview timed perfectly with my annual talk at Southern New Hampshire University, which was on June 3.

The professor shared an e-mail that she had received from one of the students. I'm currently awaiting any other feedback from the students, but this one was shared with me special.

Good Evening Professor,

I had wanted to thank Cynthia for coming out tonight to talk to us about being transgender, but I had to run out the door.

She is an exceptional person, and her emotions and feelings were definitely apparent. I only wish her the best of luck in everything she does. She is an inspiration for everyone, not just transgender people. If she can accomplish what she went out into the world to do, then so can anyone else! (Only in a positive way, of course). Thank you for having her come in. I have truly learned a lot and will be passing on the message to others including family so that we will be all knowledgeable on on this particular topic of Transgender.

I shared the above with my friend Jennifer. The nice girl that I had met in Montreal back in March of 2011, when I was at Dr Brassard's with my friend Karyn. She responded with the below reply.'

I actually had a coworker come up to me this week and talk to me about this girl from NH who was on the news talking about being transgender. They said it was very well done, I think her name was Cynthia.  Me -no way!  I know her, she's awesome. One of the best people I've ever met. :-)

Proud of you, I don't necessarily think transitioning is brave, but I think doing what you do certainly is. You're out there educating, making a difference. All the shy girls like me totally are in awe, and owe you a great deal of thanks :-)

The above is responses are precisely why I surrender my privacy and humility, to help create a better, safer, more educated future to for those following that are suffering from the same internal struggle as I had for so much of my life.

Things are getting fact, I never realized that being transgender would be so 'cool' or so 'trendy'
