Alia has been incredibly open about her journey and hopes to help others who are struggling with their identity.
“I feel like the people who don’t understand are choosing to do so out of ignorance and a lack of empathy,” Alia added.
“Decisions are hard, no matter what they are and I hope that we can all stay open-minded to understanding why, instead of projecting our insecurities and judgement.
“There will always be moments when people misunderstand me, but I can’t allow that to defeat me. I have helped so many people who were questioning their sexuality and gender by sharing my experiences.
“I’ve had many people message me looking for guidance and I enjoy instilling a feeling of trust in others.”
