My name is Ovileya Myrah and I am a 23 years old transgender woman. Born in Bangladesh as a boy, I knew to be female at a very young age. Yet, I could never embrace my gender, being an object of heavy insults and harassment at school and in my family.
Today, after years struggling for asylum in Europe, I am living in Mytilene, on the Greek island of Lesvos, and I am officially, legally recognized as a woman since beginning of this year.
I have taken a job as a kitchen assistant to afford a place to stay and my living costs on the island, yet, my salary is not enough to help me in my next physical step to become a woman.
I started my hormone medications several months ago and I can witness significant changes within my body. Yet, the next step for me is to have a breast augmentation to fulfill my dream to finally feel that I am walking, working, sleeping and dancing in the body that I feel since I am very young.
It is my dream to get the money together for this breast operation by the end of the year.
I am currently looking for clinics in Germany, Greece and Turkey to assure a healthy operation within an environment of high-quality medical service. Why there? Because I have learned that in Germany clinics for breast augmentation use mostly the best qualitative implants and most precise technologies at the operation.
Of course, you can always contact me for further questions, if you're thinking of supporting me. In the next years, it is also my uttermost dream to have a full sex reassignment surgery - but for now, starting with the breast augmentation first.
In any case, every small contribution is highly appreciated. I am reaching out on this Crowdfunding platform, since I have learned on my journey until here, that nothing can be achieved alone. Only together.
Thanks again and again for all the people who have supported me on my way so far.
