At 18 years of age, Jamie Raines embarked on the biggest journey of his life: transitioning from a young woman to the man he was always meant to be. But instead of doing it privately, Jamie decided to share it with the entire world. Taking a selfie everyday for three years (that's 1,400 selfies in total) the British student documented how hormones caused him to develop facial hair, muscles and a much deeper voice. "It was to see how testosterone can change the face," Jamie told Buzzfeed, "So if people come away seeing that, it can make those changes, then that's good…As time went on it became more rewarding. So now, I feel like I've been doing it for so long I just want to keep going, for maybe five years. I'm really happy I've done it." With over 200,000 views, the reaction to the video has been huge, especially from the trans community. An inspiration to thousands, we wish Jamie all the luck in the world as he continues his journey.
