The former elite athlete, however, still believes that the “old Bruce” is still inside her.

Born in Mount Kisco, New York, on October 28, 1949, Jenner suffered from dyslexia as a child but it was sports that saved her life.

Growing up as Bruce, she was into many sports and excelled in most of them, but it was track and field she was best at. Jenner was given a football scholarship from Graceland College in Iowa, but after suffering an injury she turned to being part of the track team.

Ever since the school days, Jenner experienced issues with gender identity.

Speaking to ABC, Jenner said, “I see a confused person at that time, running away from my life … with big-time fear. [I was] scared to death. I didn’t realize what my future held at that time.

“That is me. That is her,” she added, referring to her gender identity. “[you can be a woman] and still kick butt.”
