Director Dee said: 'Noella is never really nervous or scared of anything. He's a little professional!

She was excited to walk the catwalk and look at the cameras. She knows how to work for a crowd.

We're so proud of Noella for being the first trans child at New York Fashion Week

We are amazed by her confidence and determination.

Noella already has so many transgender people of all ages who approach her for advice, and support.

Noella is very outspoken and a wonderful advocate for other trans children.

Everything changed when, at the age of four, Noella went to therapy and announced that she was having a girl.

Her parents think their daughter is too young to start transitioning medically

But in the meantime, he has been given the freedom to find his identity.

Dee said, 'Noella's life had a bad start because she was so sad to be seen as a boy.'
