Being non-binary: 'I don't feel like a girl but I'm not a boy'

Teenage years can be tough - exam stress, arguments with friends, growing pains and of course wanting more independence. But add to that feeling you just don't fit the skin you're in.

Born a girl - this 16-year-old year doesn't see herself as defined by gender.

Describing herself as non-binary - a term used by some who feel they don't identify with being either male or female - Marley, who's taking part in this year's BBC News School Report, wanted to tell her story.

If you, or anyone you know, has a shared experience, you can contact the BBC's Actionline.
