Athena’s TRANSformation

As a child, Anthony Royster remembers watching The Disney Channel and wishing she were characters like Raven-Symoné and Hannah Montana. 

About one year ago Anthony Royster realized she was transgender.

Anthony now goes by the name Athena Odette Royster and is in the process of making the name change legal.  As a Penn State undergrad, Athena is studying psychology and women studies.  She wants to combine those disciplines with her love for music to become a performer and music therapist.  She says music has been healing for her throughout her transition and hopes to share that influence with others.
