Jazz Jennings Announces She’s Going to Harvard University


What, like it’s hard?

Jazz Jennings is headed to Harvard, y’all! The 18-year-old star shared the news online and revealed how “stoked” she is to embark on this exciting chapter. “#Harvard2023.”

“Still can’t believe this is real,” the TLC reality TV personality and transgender icon captioned her Instagram announcement, along with a photo of her wearing a sweater repping the Ivy League school.

“I am so stoked for this next chapter of my life! Feeling so blessed and grateful right now,” she wrote. “Thank you so much to my incredible family for your unconditional love and support; none of this would be possible without all of you. I can’t wait for what’s to come!”

Many of her followers congratulated her and expressed their overwhelming support. “You’re the next Elle Woods,” one fan commented. “Woot woot! Get it, girl,” another wrote.

In fact, Jazzy’s special announcement caught the attention of Katie Couric, who commented, “CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!! so so happy for you!”

While her TLC reality TV show, I Am Jazz, is slated to return in 2020, it’s unknown if she’ll highlight her life as a college student. Back in March, she announced the series was picked up for a sixth season. “Thank you all for supporting the show and our family,” she wrote in her Instagram announcement.

Her reality show has documented her life, including her transition journey.
