Miss Sahhara, a well-known transwoman from Nigeria, offers some words of wisdom to those looking to make the transition to womanhood.
Sahhara revealed on her Instagram story that she underwent corrective surgery with the drains still in place, and that she then spent the night in the hospital.

To my trans sisters, I see a lot of you making the same mistakes I made in order to fit into society. Please be patient, don’t rush into doing things your body will produce naturally. Becoming the woman you truly are takes years, it is a gradual marathon step, not a sprint.
