Born male as Michael, Berke transitioned to a transwoman, Michelle, including hormones and surgery beginning in 2003. She had always had a rough life, a severe learning disability and depression. Eventually, she decided to explore God. She went to church and dedicated her life to Jesus. A pastor came to her later and said God wanted her to live as a man and showed her a video testimony of Sy Rogers. She put her trust in the pastor even though she loved being a woman. A year and a half after her first transition, Berke transitioned to live as a man again. He became extremely unhappy, missing presenting as a woman and regrets the second transition. As of February 2010, she decided to live as a woman again.
