Do you know? Who is Jackie Evancho? If you don't then we wanna tell you that she is an American classical crossover singer who is making her fame since her early age. She is the singer who delivered an American national anthem at Trump's inauguration on January 20, 2017.
She has already achieved a great fame at an early age where she has just reached her 16. Jackie after giving her performance in an inauguration has now thought to talk straightly with president Trump about the rights of transgender and "The Horror" her transgender sister has faced.
It needs you to be daring when you have to confess that you are unique than the others and it needs, even more, courage when you have to confess on that matter which the public will take negatively. So, people usually love to keep some matters secret from everyone.

However, the 17-year old Juliet came forth to the public and announced that she is a transgender teen in October 2015. Even though she knew that people might change their attitude their behavior towards her after her announcement, she didn't take her step back.

Juliet is an elder sister of the well-known singer Jackie Evancho who made her first appearance as a transgender woman while she joined her singer sister on the red carpet at the Global Lyme Alliance's inaugural gala on October 8.
The singer who delivered national anthem in Trump's inauguration now seems to have a problem with Donald Trump's administration. Especially after president Trump rescinded Obama-era protections for transgender people, she really thinks she has to talk to the president.
She received the backlash for her appearance at the inaugural which was the great experience according to her which she shared with People and she also told that she wants to sit down with Trump and discuss transgender rights and "The horrors" her trans sister has faced.
She shared her views with the magazine as:
I [performed] because it’s always been about the honor and not about the politics. I try my best to stay out of politics,” says Evancho. But when Trump took action that could harm her sister, she felt compelled to speak up — “because, at that point, something had changed that was going to affect a cause that I believe in. It was going to affect my sister, who I truly love, and people that I know. It was just natural instinct. I had to do something about it.
She requested the White House representatives to organize a meeting between her and the president after the president signed the executive order rolling back protections for trans in February. The White House said that Trump would welcome a meeting and it is confirmed for the 30th and 31st March 2017.
After she got the confirmation from the White House she expressed her gratefulness through her twitter account. So, we have to wait for a little to know how she deals with the topic with Trump and we believe that she would do something that will more beneficial to all the trans community.
