Since her release, Chelsea Manning had made a few social media posts documenting her life after jail, but none had shown her face.

“Okay, so here I am everyone!!” Chelsea Manning wrote, adding a smiley-face emoji and the hashtag #HelloWorld.

The photo was published on Instagram and cross-posted on Twitter.

The grainy black-and-white photo most often associated with Chelsea Manning was released by the military in 2013 but was taken years earlier.
