Jazz Jennings becomes new face of Clean & Clear
This is natural beauty at its finest. Clean & Clear named 14-year-old transgender teen advocate Jazz Jennings the face of a new ad campaign "See the Real Me." The campaign will obviously promote skin care products but also doubles as a call-to-action series driven by social media, asking people to send in personal stories using the hashtag #SeeTheRealMe to promote natural beauty.
Twitter was buzzing with congrats for both Jennings and Clean&Clear.Michael Racanelli tweeted, "This is so rad. Kudos to Clean & Clear for stepping up to promote tolerance. Love it. #LGBT"
And Kristen Lilla said, "This is amazing! Jazz is so inspirational and breaking the binary. Shout out to Clean and Clear too...."
And Ryan Speakman said, "Way to go, @cleanandclear ! #BETRUETOYOURSELF"
Jennings has had a number of big reasons to celebrate before she was even a teen.
When she was 11, she spoke to Barbara Walters on "20/20" about growing up trans.She also co-wrote a children's book, "I Am Jazz," based on her life and became the youngest person to appear on the Out 100 and The Advocate's 40 Under 40.
Last year, TIME Mag put her on the list of 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014.
She's also been dubbed "The New Face of Transgender Youth" and this week, she landed a TLC reality series called "All That Jazz."
