Los Angeles: Caitlyn Jenner has promised to pay for a transgender woman to study nursing after hearing about her struggles to get accepted in a course.
The "I Am Cait" star decided to use her "privilege" to help Blossom Brown fulfill her dream career after meeting with her at a Human Rights Campaign office in San Francisco, reported E!Online.
While meeting with transwoman at a Human Rights Campaign office in San Francisco, Jenner and her friends heard Brown's story.
"I wanted to be in nursing school so, so bad. I had the GPA, I had good ACT score, and the first time I didn't get in. OK, so let me work a little harder.
"I took some classes, applied again, still nothing. And I couldn't get in to nursing school for like the sixth time because I'm trans. People were looking at that, and you need to be looking at my hard work and dedication that I put into this hard work," Brown said.
Later on, Jenner and her friends reflect on Brown's heart-wrenching struggle.
"I've lived a great life," Jenner said.
"And I realize in this transition that I kind of have that privileged status. You were a white guy, you worked hard, I've been able to put a few dollars away. So I'm blessed. I'm in a wonderful position in life."
