Meril's #WeBelongInCollege Story

In Meril's story, they explain that “the biggest secret of my life is that I’m not a girl.” Meril first came out as non-binary in 9th grade and uses they/them pronouns. When Meril started to fill out college applications, they were confronted again and again with the boxes asking about their gender identity. Meril struggled with this and decided to write in the college applications as she/her and as a result, started to question if they would be able to feel like they belonged in college. Meril's journey will inspire you.
