Growing Up Transgender: Jazz Jennings

Jazz Jennings, on the cusp of TV stardom, says “most other teenage girls out there would just love the attention,” but not her.

“I’m just more of a reserved person. I’m open and I’m out there, but I also enjoy being alone, relaxing. That’s something I’ve had to really sacrifice, but if it’s a sacrifice worth making, then I’m going to make it,” says Jazz, the South Florida girl who at age 6 came out publicly as transgender in a 2007 ABC News interview with Barbara Walters.
