A teenage boy was bullied for big ears at school and was branded by the bullies as ‘ugly’. However, Niall Davies from Birmingham is now having the last laugh after becoming a female glamour model. Who’s the dumbo now!?
Niall, now known as Tiffany-Rose, decided to become female and change his name when he was just 17 years old. But since she made that decision she has been much happier and due to the teenagers naturally feminine looks she has even been offered modelling work.
“Kids at school would tease me because my ears stuck out and I had a big nose. “I would be called a ‘freak’ and ‘ugly’ and names like ‘dumbo'” She told the Daily Mail.
“It was really upsetting. I didn’t have many friends and felt isolated.”
“Now I pass well as a woman – most people would have no idea I was born a man. I want to have a full sex change and boob job to make my transformation complete.
Tiffany-Rose said she first started to feel unhappy in her body when she was just eight, and from the age of 13 she wanted to become a girl and began experimenting with make-up. A year later she decided to tell her mum about her feelings, which at first made her think she was homosexual.
“My mum didn’t seem surprised when I told her I was gay, but when she explained that being gay simply meant I would be attracted to other men I knew that wasn’t the case.” She said.
“I felt like a woman and was attracted to straight men. She told me that she’d thought for years that I might be transgender – which meant that I wanted to be a woman.
“That’s when I first started to understand my feelings.”
The 22-year-old is now having hormone treatment for a full sex change on the NHS and wants to pay for a breast augmentation herself to take her to a 34C.
“It will take two years to feminise me but I will be on them for the rest of my life,” she said.
“Having boobs will allow me to fulfil my ambitions of being a transsexual glamour model.
Tiffany-Rose’s heroes include Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole and Britney Spears: “I’m all about being individual but I get confidence from my favourite celebrities… I’m similar to Cheryl as we both just want to settle down and get married.
“I dyed my hair brown like Kim and Cheryl as I think it suits me compared to being bleach blonde, even though I did love being a blonde as it made me look like my idol Britney.”
The aspiring glamour model also wants to be a role model for other transsexuals or those struggling with their gender: “I’d love to become a transgender underwear model to show those in my position that anything is possible.
“I want to inspire other transsexuals, showing them that being born in the wrong gender doesn’t stop you from having a successful career.”
She added: “I hope to bring out my own make-up range and open a hairdressing salon, I’m really excited about the future.”
