Kylie Clifton has long, thick waves of blonde hair, the same sandy shade as her mom's.

"Today is the first day of the rest of my life," 11-year-old Kylie posted on Instragram that evening. "So happy I don't know what to do with myself."
Just a few months before, Kylie was still living as Kyle – an earnest, thoughtful boy who struggled with anxiety.
