'When I started at a new school as a teenager I had made the decision to have short hair but because of the school uniform, I had to wear skirt. It was terrible. I was the only girl with short hair, everyone else was girly. I was bullied because I was the odd one out and different.'
The law student, who was born in Northern Ireland, said it was easier when she lived in the UK as people were more 'open-minded'. But as her mother is Portuguese, they moved to Portugal when she was a teenager where she tried to make an effort to be more feminine.
