11-Year-Old Transgender Girl Responds To Obama’s Inauguration Speech

“It would be a better world if everyone knew that transgender people have the same hopes and dreams as everyone else,” Sadie wrote in her essay.

Sadie, who socially transitioned from a boy to a girl at an early age, was “inspired her to write her own speech” following Obama’s inaugural address.

“Sadie was so proud of President Obama for including the gay community in his inaugural address on Monday; however, she felt like the trans community wasn’t included,” Sadie’s mother told The Huffington Post.

Although she’s been bullied and discriminated against in the past, Sadie is not ashamed of who she is. That’s why her mother encouraged her to write the essay, because she wanted her “to know she has a voice.” And what Sadie wrote turned out to be a declaration of empowerment as well as a call for trans human rights here in the U.S.
