Fan reaction was mostly congratulatory. Jazz’s brother, Sander, even gave his two cents with an inspirational Instagram communiqué. “Continue spreading your wings and radiating a positive light on everyone around you,” he wrote. “I am so excited for you to begin your time at Harvard ❤️.”
If you recall, Jazz was supposed to register Fall semester 2019. But, due to mental health issues, she decided “to take a break before starting at Harvard.” Prior to making a decision, Jazz ruminated offers from Princeton and Pomona College. The ambivalent 19-year-old plans to major in philosophy, gender and religion. “I feel like there’s a lot in store for me at Harvard and I’m really excited,” she said.
Jazz has already undergone gender confirmation surgery which means her phallus is gone.
She’s 100 percent woman.
