The 18-year-old took to her social media to share the great news! Jazz Jennings is going to Harvard and she couldn’t be more ecstatic!
The TLC star and transgender icon posted a pic of her in a Harvard sweater and captioned it: ‘Still can’t believe this is real. I am stoked for the next chapter in my life! Feeling blessed and grateful. Thank you so much to my amazing family for your unconditional love and support; none of this would be possible without you. I cannot wait for what’s to come!’
Her fans were super happy to hear this and made sure to wish her all the best on her new journey!
One follower told her that ‘You’re the next Elle Woods.’
Katie Couric also made sure to congratulate her in the comment section.
The young reality TV star then posted a video in which she gushed over going to the famous Ivy League school
Jazz admitted that she was shocked to hear she was accepted, and explained why!
Apparently, it was not because she was not confident in her abilities but because it’s a really ‘selective school with such a small acceptance rate. I was like ‘Who gets into Harvard?’ But I got in! I feel really grateful to have this opportunity to attend an institution that’s so incredible and well-renowned.’
Jazz argued that the school would not change her, however, and that she would make sure to have a great time while there as well.
She told her fans that she’s most excited to meet new people and form friendships to last a lifetime!
Obviously, that’s not to say she’s not also ‘really excited just to learn and expand my mind.’
As for her major, Jazz said that she’s still not sure but would go for something about Religion, Gender or Philosophy.
