Jazz Jennings says she feels ‘giddy’ when she thinks about her family
The Jennings’ family relationship is at the core of I Am Jazz. The show’s 20-year-old star, who has been open about her mental health challenges, says having supportive parents and siblings has been crucial for her well-being.
“Just having my family support me, that’s all I need to boost my spirits,” she said in a recent interview with Variety. “Not everyone has that family support, and when I think about my family, I just feel, like, giddy inside.”
Over the previous six seasons, viewers have seen how Jazz and her family deal with her transition.
“It really is not just about the child who’s transitioning, but the family that’s transitioning,” Jazz said. “You have to learn new pronouns. You have to learn to stick up for your transgender family member when they’re going through difficult situations or when someone’s not treating them correctly. There’s so many new things that you have to learn.”
“The transition really requires everybody to have additional love and support for each other, because it’s not easy,” Jazz’s father, Greg told Variety. “But it’s important to work together.”
