Jazz Jennings' close friend is expressing his concerns.
As the 21-year-old prepares to head into her first year of college at Harvard University during the latest season of I Am Jazz, her friends and family can't help but be a little bit worried about her.
In the most recent episode of the hit reality series, Jazz's family friend Raymond asked her how she is feeling about starting college soon, while also warning her to take care of herself while she is on her own.
"Jazz has been under so much pressure and stress her whole life," Raymond explained in a confessional on Tuesday's episode "I just wanna make sure that she's getting the support that she needs.
He also told Jazz's mom Jeanette that he feels "worried" about Jazz, considering she has so many plans to change her life around while she is on her own at school. (The reality star expressed that she plans on committing to her weight loss journey as she begins her freshman year.)
Jeanette also admitted she is "concerned" about her daughter — who has been struggling with mental health issues for years. "I want her to go, but I want to make sure she's okay," the doting mom added.
Earlier in the episode, Jazz confessed to Raymond that she is "finally ready to go to school and be on my own and thrive," although she is still looking to get some more independence from her hovering mom.
"She's having a hard time giving me my freedom and independence heading into school," she said of her mom. "I think as I transition to school it's gonna be hard for her to let go completely."
"I know it's coming from a place of love. She just wants to see me excel," she continued while noting, "I've never really had that chance to be fully independent."
The young activist also explained that she intends on exploring her sexuality more once she enters college, which is something she feels she needs to do on her own.
Jazz — who identifies as pansexual — told the cameras, "I have a lot to explore when it comes to sexuality and I feel like i don't want mom in the picure when I'm doing that."
