A trans flight attendant was found dead after sharing a heartbreaking post on social media.
Kayleigh Scott, who worked for United Airlines, gained popularity after revealing her transition in a commercial for the company.
But on March 20, the 25-year-old was found dead in her home in Colorado, according to the New York Post.
On the morning of March 20, Kayleigh shared a heartbreaking post on social media and wrote: “As I take my final breaths and exit this living earth, I would like to apologize to everyone I let down.
“I am so sorry I could not be better. To those that I love, I am sorry I could not be stronger.
“To those that gave me their everything, I am sorry my effort was not reciprocated.
“Please understand that me leaving is not a reflection on you, but the result of my own inability to turn myself for the better.”
She continued: “To Ashley, Cynthia, Regine & Sophia. I am so sorry. Please remember me for the good memories we have shared, and never for my downfall.
“I will see you all again on the other side.”
She added: “Brianna, I’m coming.”
Kayleigh starred in a video for the airline where she opened up about transitioning and how her co-workers supported her.
“There was so much pain behind that sweet boy’s eyes … This is a story that I know is so important for me to continue sharing,” she said in the video.
Kayleigh’s grieving mother, Andrea Sylvestro, confirmed Scott’s death on Facebook and expressed how much she misses her already.
“Kayleigh Scott…I am so unbelievably proud to have you as my daughter, proud and amazed by everything that you have done in your life, your smile was absolutely beautiful, your laughter was unbelievably contagious, your heart was bigger than any of us could have ever understood,” she wrote.
