Jazz Jennings stepped into the brand new year 2020 by embracing who she is, the experiences it took for her to get her dream body by sharing a photo of herself in a swimsuit that shows off scars from her gender confirmation surgery.
The 19-year-old reality star and transgender activist referenced her “battle wounds” in an Instagram post on Wednesday, where she had the upper-thigh scars on full display for the first time since her 2018 surgery.
She documented her life and gender transition in front of the camera for her TLC series I Am Jazz since 2015. In the show’s fifth season she even let audiences in on the biggest surgery of her life.
The show later showcased Jennings’ post-surgery milestones, her first trip to the beach included, where she was able to wear a woman’s swimsuit — albeit once that covered the wide scars on her upper thighs — for the first time.
