The German singer completed her early education at the local school in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. She is fluent in both English and German language. Born transgender, Petras was 2 years old when she decided to be a girl. As a result, Petty barely has any friends in school due to her distinct identity. She decided to undergo a gender transition surgery at the age of 16 and thus became the youngest transgender in the world to receive early sex reassignment surgery. Petras told The Telegraph a few months after the operation:

“I was asked if I feel like a woman now – but the truth is I have always felt like a woman – I just ended up in the wrong body.”
