Biko Beauttah, organizer of the Trans Workforce in Toronto, is celebrating her 12-year anniversary of arriving in Canada. Beauttah moved to Toronto in 2006, seeking asylum as a refugee from Kenya, according to CBC News. Since then, she's made a name for herself as a human rights activist. Beauttah took to Twitter Monday morning to write, "Today marks my 12th anniversary since I arrived in Canada seeking asylum as a refugee. Best [advice] I can give, 'Never ever EVER give up.'"
