Students at American University got a big surprise when the most recent student body president stepped down from the position earlier this month. Students had elected Tim McBride to serve last year, without realizing that McBride identifies as a woman. She came out as transgender publicly after serving her time as student body president.

McBride told ABC News in D.C., “If I could make the world a little more accepting and little more fairer, it would somehow make me feel complete.” The 21-year-old said she feels like she’s finally “in the right skin” after coming out and living openly as a woman.
