Fading Hollywood Dream

It can be recalled that it was back in 2017 when the proud trans woman took the risk of achieving her Hollywood dream but later on held back due to "hate" only because she is a transgender, Gandanghari opened up.

"So there I was, in the summer of 2017, doing everything that is humanly possible to survive this so called LIFE of a woman susceptible to hate because I am transgender," she wrote.

"Tough times is an understatement as I find ways and means to be productive so as to not only support a mere existence in a foreign land but to support a dream, the so-called Hollywood dream. And boy, it’s no joke." she added.

Calling it an elusive dream, Gandanghari said pursuing it was the scariest time for her as she fight for her ultimate goal.

"It is the scariest time as I wrestle thru the challenges of pursuing this now seemingly overwhelming and elusive Hollywood dream of mine," she said.

She also realized that there was no turning back or else, she would come home broke and heartbroken.

"As I try with all my might to overcome these limitations, I am in the realization that I gotta have my headshot soonest or go home or . . . broke." the actress explained.
