In Thailand, she spent $15,000 on the ‘top to bottom’ operation involving breast implants and a vaginoplasty.

The beauty queen, newly crowned, defines the first post-operative transgender contestant to compete as ‘actually bada**’ in the Miss New Zealand pageant.

She said, speaking to Metro.co.uk: ‘The pageant was a fantastic experience! It’s something I’ve wanted to do for the longest time, so it was great to finally live out my dream!

Arielle, who is studying for a bachelor’s degree in fashion design, admitted it was more ‘frightening’ to come out as a transgender woman than to tell people about becoming a gay man.

In order to stop getting any regrets in later life, she chose to be openly transgender, according to her.

‘I’d already spent the formative years of my life as the wrong gender,’ Arielle said, ‘I didn’t want to waste my 20s in the wrong body either.

‘This way of thinking really helped me get to my parents because I knew that whatever their answer was, I needed to do something about myself.’

The 26-year-old was initially thrown out by her family, who discovered that she was seeking hormone therapy and struggled to accept her decision. Two options were given -‘ to stop or leave home.’

The beauty queen revealed that she packed in a black garbage bag everything she owned and left home with her family, not knowing what would become of her.

‘My world turned upside down as I switched … But as a woman, I’d rather go through hell than have a man’s easy life,’ she said. ‘Whatever the world wants me to throw at-do it.’

Arielle, who, during her transformation, fought extreme bouts of depression and considered taking her own life, says she’s happy, not afraid, and here to stay as a woman.
