At the age of 17, Amiyah fully transitioned into female and consequently battled with her mother and father’s acceptance. As a teen and neo trans-superstar, she made her mark by trailblazing the New Orleans underground ballroom scene, and modeling/acting, providing a fresh and unique look. Her brand in beauty, modeling, and acting is trailblazing the trans community in just a short period of time. Amiyah is well known for her social media following and presence.
