Amiyah Scott Wiki/Bio
She was born on 11 January 1988 as Arthur Scott in Manhattan New York City but grew up in New Orleans Lousiana. At a young age, Scott realized that her personality did not fit into the male body with which she was born.
As a result, she told her family that she no longer wanted to be male. Without the blessing of her parents, Scott underwent partial transgender surgery at the age of 15 and was completely transferred to a woman at the age of 17.
Uneasy with her parents’ disapproval of her choice, Scott moved out of her family home and began to live for herself. Unimpressed by bullying and criticism from her community, Scott began a career as a presenter, ballplayer, and actor.
Shortly after she left home, her parents decided to accept her as she was and support her career.
In no time Scott was able to build a large social media fan base. She is known for her characteristic colorful eccentric wigs, makeup and the whole sense of fashion. Her greatest stylistic inspirations have been Rihanna and Lil’, Kim.
