{{quote|I realized that I wasn’t a girl in college. I met my fiance on Tumblr and we figured our gender identities out together, and found the term to describe ourselves on Tumblr.
That’s where I got most of my information. When I found some terms, I started looking more things up and putting more research into things.
There was never a moment where I did not like being a girl. I identified as such and I didn’t feel like oh, this isn’t right.
I had one momentary thing in high school that I can get into in a bit, but when I found there were other terms to describe me, like nonbinary terms and terms under the nonbinary umbrella, I started realizing that fits me better.
Not that girl didn’t fit me, but this fits me much, much better. I think this is definitely what I am.<ref name="Topel">{{Cite web |title=Rise's nonbinary actor Ellie Desautels talks tonight's episode and improving trans representation |last=Topel |first=Fred |work=Monsters and Critics |date=3 April 2018 |access-date=12 May 2020 |url= https://www.monstersandcritics.com/smallscreen/rises-nonbinary-actor-ellie-desautels-talks-tonights-episode-and-improving-trans-representation/}}</ref>}}
