Life Before Gender Transformation

But in 2007 at the age of 41 years, Aryeh decided to undergo gender transformation which inspired a lot of people to be proud of their identities. Wife Melanie wholeheartedly supported her from being Aryeh to her which made the phases easier.

Everyone was surprised by the change, many confused her to be Aryeh’s sister. No wonder there are similarities in the look. But Dr, Aryeh, and she are the same and the military cadets even gave her the nickname Mrs. Gunfire after her transformation.
