Nancy is a 27 year old transwoman from Lebanon. When she understood her gender identity at the age of 15, she had to deal with rejection, exclusion and violence since the culture where she grew up in does not tolerate LGBTI+ people. At the age of 24, she decided to leave Lebanon and to go to the Netherlands to ask for asylum. Where ironically, she found her self facing rejection, exclusion, and violence from a different angle. She studied Nutrition and Dietetics at the Lebanese international university and she is currently following a premaster of cultural anthropology at the University of Amsterdam.
