You can see Jenna Talackova before surgery photos on her official website. The teen was born as Walter and began hormone therapy when she was 14 years old. She opted for sex reassignment surgery in 2010 and received positive feedback from her boyfriend, who was very supportive. When she won Miss Universe Canada last month, she became an overnight sensation. Her story made headlines around the world.
Since being named Walter Page Talackova in Grade Eight, Jenna Talackova has made headlines for being the first transgender model to front a major beauty brand. She even landed a contract with hair care company Redken. In 2010 she represented Canada in the Miss Universe beauty contest. After she won the contest, she announced that she was taking legal action against the Miss Universe Organization and former president Donald Trump.
As a transgender woman, Jenna’s story has become an inspiration for transgender women and men. Many women are struggling to come out and be accepted, and she tapped into the struggle of underrepresented women. This includes being judged by the Miss Universe Pageant on her physical appearance. This would have made her appearance on TV more difficult, but her story has been used as a way to raise awareness about the issue.
