Jazz Jennings stars in TLC's reality docu-series "I Am Jazz."

Although born male, Jazz Jennings is a transgender female and has been living as a girl since kindergarten. Parents Jeanette and Greg have spent the years finding doctors to treat their daughter, while fighting the discrimination and misconceptions associated with what it means to be transgender.

But, now that Jazz is 14, she is on the brink of the biggest challenge of her life: high school. Not only does Jazz face the normal struggles of a 14-year-old girl — boy crazy friends, mood swings, and body image issues — she must also contend with the unique challenges of being a transgender girl. Jazz is on a regimen of hormone therapy so that she can look and develop like the other girls in her school. But, she struggles with comparing herself, and the lagging pace of her breast development to her friends.

In four short years, Jeanette and Greg's youngest daughter will be a candidate for gender reassignment surgery. With that decision on the horizon, they must first survive four years of high school. With unconditional love and humor this close-knit family works together to face the many challenges ahead.
