Jazz Jennings Shares Her Plans For The Fall

The "I Am Jazz" star will be taking a break before starting school at Harvard University.

In a heartfelt statement, Jazz Jennings revealed on Instagram that she will be postponing her enrollment at Harvard University for some much-needed self-care.


"I wanted to share some news. After careful consideration I have decided to take a break before starting at Harvard. It wasn’t an easy decision but it is the right one for me. These past few years have been so full and busy that I realized I could use some time to refocus and recenter to be the strongest version of myself. I am so grateful to have the support of my parents and Harvard in making this decision and look forward to focusing on some self-care and getting prepared to start this exciting next chapter in my life."

Jazz first announced her acceptance to the university last May, saying, “When I found out I was accepted to Harvard, I was just so shocked. Not because I didn’t think I could do it, but because it’s such a selective school with such a small acceptance rate that I was like ‘Who gets into Harvard?’ But I got in!”
