She underwent a sex-change surgery at a tender age. Her second book primarily spoke about her experiences after her transition into a woman. A 'New York University' graduate, Mock began her career as an editor at 'People.com' and subsequently contributed to several magazines, throwing light on the conditions of transgender people of color. Mock has been an inspiration to children who face criticism for their sexual orientation. She has raised her voice against all sorts of stereotyping that can cause feelings of inferiority in children. Several organizations have felicitated Mock's endeavors to secure equal rights for transgender people.
