Jazz Jennings Claps Back At Haters Claiming Reality Star Didn't Deserve To Be Readmitted To Harvard University: 'People Are Trying To Deny My Accomplishments'
Jazz Jennings has no room for haters.
The star of the hit reality series I Am Jazz told her Instagram followers how she really feels about online trolls trying to discredit her recent readmission to Harvard University.
After originally being admitted to the prestigious university two years ago, the 21-year-old activist ended up putting her schooling on hold while she dealt with ongoing mental health struggles.
In the latest season of the TLC show, Jazz has been trying to meet all of the requirements to be readmitted for her freshman year — and she learned on the most recent episode that she was officially heading to Harvard.
Jazz later shared with her Instagram followers that she completed her first semester back in the fall. Despite her celebratory post in light of the good news, the reality star accused haters on her social media accounts of trying to "deny" her "accomplishments" by arguing she was only admitted to the school because of her fame.
Jazz decided to set the record straight on her Instagram Story on Wednesday, January 19, after the latest episode aired the night before.

"I don't need validation, but I want to brag anyways since I worked so hard and people are trying to deny my accomplishments — specifically concerning my admission to Harvard," she began the lengthy post. "On top of my visibility as a trans woman, I have always been an academically focused person."
Jazz went on to list a number of impressive academic achievements, including graduating as her high school class' valedictorian. She also mentioned having consistently high grade point averages throughout her whole life and being amongst the top scorers on a number of national tests.
She followed up her post with a photo of herself, writing, "I deserve this."
Aside from her academic credentials, Jazz had a myriad of requirements to complete before she was considered for readmission to Harvard, which included her completing an internship and finding a whole new clinical team in Boston.
As OK! previously reported, Jazz was only given one week to find a new team of therapists and psychiatrists to monitor her mental health while she is located in Boston.
