“Planet Earth is full of labels,” NikkieTutorials shares of the awful reality of the world we are in. Frankly, you can’t please everyone. But here’s the thing, you’re not obliged to please everyone. It’s going to be a rough road. Regardless, there’s a place for everyone who feels down, insecure, and misunderstood. And if you choose to stand up, prove your strength, and surround yourself with love, what’s difficult and scary can prove to be a piece of cake, a silver lining if you will. This is no guarantee, but for as long as you feel free and live your truth, you’re on the right track.

Living her life without any restrictions, NikkieTutorials revealed a part of herself, which she wants her 12.6 million subscribers to finally know after 11 years of her YouTube career. Her way of welcoming a brand new year is to brave her past, be her own person, and tell her audience nothing but the truth. The beauty vlogger emphasized on encouragement, self-love, trust, and self-freedom.

Nikkie reiterates that she doesn’t need any labels, but if people were to label her, she’s a transgender woman. Despite the fear of how people will conceive her whole truth, Nikkie’s thankful for the unwavering support of her family, especially her mom, friends, and her fiancé Dylan who have made her feel all the love that she needs and more.

What we know now? Out and about, she’s living her best life. Despite the revelation that really did catch us by surprise, nothing’s going to change—she’s still her. We’re definitely watching the same Nikkie and more of her beauty uploads that we’ve watched, subscribed, and adored since day one. This time, however, there is definitely much more love for this brave, beautiful soul.
