Meet the World's Most Successful Transgender Model
Model Andreja Pejic broke new ground after starting as a male and became the most successful androgynous runway model ever. Now Andreja (formerly Andrej) is telling us her story for the first time after completing her transgender transformation.
"One of my earliest memories was spinning around in my mom's skirt, trying to be a ballerina," says Andreja. "It was at the age of 13 when I discovered what trans means and what gender identity means and what sexuality means, and I knew that this was something I always had to do."
Before working with big names like Marc Jacobs and Jean Paul Gaultier, Andreja was a Bosnian War refugee who emigrated to Australia and was discovered in McDonald's at 17.
