A teenage boy is having the last laugh on the bullies who made his childhood a misery – after becoming a FEMALE glamour model.
When he was at school, Niall Davies was taunted for having big ears and was branded 'ugly'.
But ever since he started living as a woman at the age of 17, the teenager has found happiness.
Niall made the life-changing decision to become female and changed his name to Tiffany-Rose – and her naturally feminine looks have now seen her land modelling work.
She is now having hormone treatment for a full sex change on the NHS and wants to pay for a breast augmentation herself to take her to a 34C.
Tiffany-Rose, now 22, from Birmingham, told the Daily Mail: "Kids at school would tease me because my ears stuck out and I had a big nose. "I would be called a 'freak' and 'ugly' and names like 'dumbo'.
"It was really upsetting. I didn't have many friends and felt isolated.
"Now I pass well as a woman - most people would have no idea I was born a man. I want to have a full sex change and boob job to make my transformation complete.
"I'd love to become a transgender underwear model to show those in my position that anything is possible."
Tiffany-Rose has based her style on her heroes, who include Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole and Britney Spears.
She said: "I'm all about being individual but I get confidence from my favourite celebrities.
"I'm similar to Cheryl as we both just want to settle down and get married.
"I dyed my hair brown like Kim and Cheryl as I think it suits me compared to being bleach blonde, even though I did love being a blonde as it made me look like my idol Britney."
Tiffany-Rose said she first started to feel unhappy in her body aged eight and from the age of 13 she wanted to become a girl and began experimenting with make-up.
A year later she decided to tell her mum about her feelings, which at first made her think she was homosexual.
She said: "My mum didn't seem surprised when I told her I was gay, but when she explained that being gay simply meant I would be attracted to other men I knew that wasn't the case.
"I felt like a woman and was attracted to straight men. She told me that she'd thought for years that I might be transgender - which meant that I wanted to be a woman.
"That's when I first started to understand my feelings."
Tiffany-Rose changed her name by deed poll in 2010 and began a course of hormones a year ago.
"It will take two years to feminise me but I will be on them for the rest of my life," she said.
"Having boobs will allow me to fulfil my ambitions of being a transsexual glamour model.
"I want to inspire other transsexuals, showing them that being born in the wrong gender doesn't stop you from having a successful career."
She added: "I hope to bring out my own make-up range and open a hairdressing salon, I'm really excited about the future."
