Jazz Jennings has a lot to look forward to, and she's only a teenager!
Jennings, who has been dubbed "The New Face of Transgender Youth," has not only landed a new TLC reality series called All That Jazz, but has also been named the face of Clean and Clear's new ad campaign, "See the Real Me." The campaign promotes skin care products but also doubles as a call-to-action series on social media, asking people to send in their stories using the hashtag #SeeTheRealMe to promote natural beauty, according to Yahoo News.
All That Jazz will follow the 14-year-old as she navigates her way through high school, friends, dating and the everyday life of a teenager. But it's even more complicated for Jennings, who was assigned male at birth. The series will also feature her immediate family, including her maternal grandparents, who at first struggled to understand their granddaughter but have since embraced her.
"We know that families come in all shapes and sizes, but at their core, they are all about love, acceptance, and support. Only TLC can tell this family's story in way that celebrates and demystifies difference in an effort to help create a world without prejudice," said Marjorie Kaplan, group president, TLC, in a statement.
The 11-episode series, which also include her family, is scheduled to premiere this summer.
"Jazz's story is universal, yet unique, and we're proud to partner with her family to share it with TLC's audience," said Nancy Daniels, General Manager, TLC. "Jazz may be known as an author and activist, but she's first and foremost a teenage girl with a big, brave heart, living a remarkable life."
Although she has two new projects to look forward to, Jennings already made a name for herself when she wrote a children's book, I Am Jazz, with Jessica Herthel, about living as a transgender teen. She was also named one of the 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014 by Time magazine.
