Meet fifteen-year-old Jazz Jennings. Jennings is a transgender teen and YouTube sensation whose become an activist for those like herself.
Although she was born a boy, since the age of five, Jennings has lived her life as a girl.
Now, she’s landed a major deal with a beauty company, becoming the face of “Clean and Clear” and their “See the Real Me” campaign.
“Growing up has been quite a struggle being transgender, especially in middle school,” says Jennings.
“Some kids greet each other with hugs and just give me a ‘hi,’” she explains in the “Clean and Clear” ad.
“The real me is happy and proud to be who I am and I’m just having fun being one of the girls,” she adds.
Jennings, who is also an author at her tender age, will also be documenting her life in her own TLC doc-series, “All That Jazz.”
“We know that families come in all shapes and sizes, but at their core, they are all about love, acceptance and support,” the president of TLC said in a statement about the new show. “Only TLC can tell this family’s story in a way that celebrates and demystifies differences in an effort to help create a world without prejudice.”
