Jazz Jennings is packing her bags for Boston.
The 18-year-old activist revealed that she is attending Harvard University in the fall, captioning a photo of herself on Instagram: “I am so stoked for this next chapter of my life! Feeling so blessed and grateful right now. Thank you so much to my incredible family for your unconditional love and support; none of this would be possible without all of you. I can’t wait for what’s to come!”
She also captioned the photo “#Harvard2023.”
She also posted a video announcement, saying: “I am going to Harvard, I cannot believe it. When I found out I was accepted to Harvard, I was 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. I was like ‘Who gets into Harvard?’ But I got in! I feel so grateful to have this opportunity to attend an institution that’s so incredible and well-renowned.”
The “I Am Jazz” star has her family’s support on her decision to attend the Ivy League university, with her brother Sander commenting: “I am the most proud brother on the planet. You continue to amaze me.”
She previously expressed a desire to pursue a career in advocacy, although she did not say if she declared her major yet.
Also attending next semester is Kimora and Russell Simmons’ daughter Aoki Lee, 16. They revealed that she was admitted to the university in March.
