I Am: A Journey of Self-Liberation

Nisha Madhuri Kishore

"They handed my glasses back to me, and I saw a tuft of hair swishing to the side with sideburns on each side. As I met this new version of myself in the mirror, I looked at my soul through my eyes and knew I was Zadian."


Nisha reinvented herself from a woman to a man and back again, from religion to spirituality, and from bondage to freedom. In I Am: A Journey of Self-Liberation, she describes how to reclaim your most audacious and authentic self through her own lived experiences.


Key scenes include

  • A two-way gender transition
  • Freeing herself from self-injury and suicidal ideation
  • Embracing the Higher Power within herself and forgiving LGBTQIA+ discrimination


This book uniquely tackles gender transition, mental health, and LGBTQIA+ discrimination from a queer, first-generation South Asian American woman's perspective. Nisha wrote this book for anyone going through an identity exploration, major life change, or recovering from severe trauma. From the adolescent wrestling with self-acceptance to the CEO who wonders what makes life worth living, these stories will resonate with anyone who grapples with life's deep questions.


Nisha's deepest hope is that by experiencing her story, you'll be able to unlock the freedom within yourself and remember that you are not a destination or a thing to "fix," but an infinitely precious soul to know.
