Re: – Ari's Story

M Ari was brought up by a single mum who died when Ari was in her teens. This hit Ari hard and she began to self-mutilate and have suicidal thoughts. Ari is living as a female after transitioning last year. Up until then, she had suppressed who she'd always known she was. There wasn't much support for LGBTQIA youth in her area and Ari felt isolated and alone. She is now excited about life in Tauranga with her new girlfriend who accepts her for who she is.
