I'm the type of guy who fails and fails and fails, and then, as if failure has become sick of him, succeeds.|
I was a dyslexic kid.
I didn't only have a perceptual problem, I was also so nervous and so upset. The process just didn't work. I lost enthusiasm for school and I flunked second grade. The teachers said I was lazy.

Bruce Jenner is born a male
Bruce Jenner was born as William Bruce Jenner on 28 October 1949 in Mount Kisco, NY and the current age of this transgender is 68 years. His father William Hugh Jenner was an arborist while the mother was Esther Ruth. Bruce has two sisters-Pam and Lisa. Bruce’s younger brother was Burt and he was killed in a car accident in Canton, Connecticut in 1976. Bruce was dyslexic in childhood.
Bruce attended Sleepy Hollow High School and Newton High School and received the graduation in 1968. On a football scholarship, Bruce attended Graceland College in Iowa and could not pursue this sport further due to a knee injury. He was told to try the decathlon. In 1973, he completed college with a degree in Physical Education in hand.
The Olympic and athletic career
Bruce qualified for the Olympic team in 1972. Inspired by Soviet Mykola Avilov, Bruce started to practice and talking about it had later said:
“I trained that day on through the 1976 Games, 6–8 hours a day, every day, 365 days a year.”
Bruce won the championship at the 1974 Olympic decathlon and in 1975 won the French National Championship. There was a gold medal at the 1975 Pan American Games. At the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games, he was the show stealer and won the decathlon.
He became a national hero and received several awards for his great show at the games. He capitalized on this new fame and received many offers as a celebrity.
Bruce also got TV and film offers. He has starred in Keeping up with the Kardashians. He also did game shows on TV. He also had a successful career as a race car driver and Bruce had said:
“I was a lot more badass runner than I was a driver.”
Bruce also ventured into the business line.
His personal life
Bruce married three times before he transitioned to a female. In 1972 after his graduation, he married Chrystie Scott who was a flight attendant with United Airlines. They had a son named Burton and a daughter called Cassandra. The couple divorced in 1981.
The same year, Bruce married actress Linda Thompson in Hawaii. They had two sons-Brandon and Sam. They separated in 1986 and divorced soon after.
Coming out as a transgender
In 2015, Bruce came out as a transgender and changed his name to Caitlyn. He said that he used to cross-dress when young and also was taking hormone replacement therapy but had ceased it when he got married to Kris. These led to problems in their marital life and finally the divorce.
There were already problems in their relationship and this escalated when Caitlyn (former Bruce) came out with her memoir in which she has not painted Kris in a good light. This had angered her kids and they were not on talking terms for some time. Caitlyn had spent the father’s and mother’s day alone at his house in Malibu and it was only later that the kids managed to pardon her for talking ill about their mother Kris in the memoir.
Furthermore, currently, she is dating Sophia Hutchins and their relationship was “inseparable”
