Caitlyn Jenner shared her life’s major milestones, from discovering sports to starting reality show phenomenon “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” in a new video for H&M.

Jenner, who is the face of H&M’s sports line, reveals she had gender-identity issues in fifth grade and struggled with dyslexia. However, after discovering she was a fast runner in gym class she was able to distract herself from her issues.

“Sports was always this wonderful diversion from myself, and about who I was,” Jenner says.

The former Olympian says another victory for her was when she visited a gender clinic in 1984. Jenner says she felt understood after her meeting, but couldn’t go further with her transition.

Other key moments for Jenner were having children, meeting Kris Jenner and deciding to start filming “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” More recently, she also considers her public transition in 2015 a major win.
