“That means I’m transgender if you didn’t know. My pronouns are they/she, which means that they or she are totally fine, and I’m just hopping on here to tell you that I’m going to be posting more on Tiktok and I’m excited about it!” Zackery added.

As stated, Zackery‘s preferred pronouns are they/she.

Zackery recently graduated from USC (University of Southern California) with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in dance, and she’s working towards her MA!

“BFA✔️ MA 1/2 ✔️ so excited to have finished my undergrad degree at USC and more excited to take on one more year to complete my MA! I am graduating with a special award ‘Order of Arête’ and Magna Cum Laude! I am so grateful to all of the people that have helped me get here! Much love💙,” she shared on Instagram earlier in May.
