Color us inspired, because one of the biggest beauty vloggers on YouTube has revealed a big truth about herself: Nikkie de Jager (aka NikkieTutorials) has announced that she is a transgender woman!

The 25-year-old, who boasts 12.4 million subscribers, made the revelation in a coming-out video on Monday, aptly titled I’m Coming Out, in which she stated emotionally:

“When I was younger, I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender… It’s so surreal saying this.”

Nikkie went on to reveal that while she doesn’t like labels, she felt the need to come out as trans because she was “blackmailed by people that wanted to ‘leak’” her story. Not one to negotiate with bullies, the YouTube star decided to take back her power and come out on her channel.
