Model makes surprising admission at TED Talk
Fearful that coming out might cause irreparable damage to her career, she didn't publicly reveal that was born assigned a male gender in her professional realm until 2013. Then on March 31, in honor of International Transgender Day of Visibility, Rocero gave a TED Talk that served as her official "coming out," and she courageously told the story of how she was able to become comfortable with who she is - both inside and outside.
Thanks to her supportive family and the acceptance of gender fluidity in Asian culture, Rocero was able to live out her dreams of becoming a fashion model - and now she wants to dedicate her life to help others do the same.
