Jazz and her parents have appeared on television several times to share how tough her life is to grow up as a transgender. Her story has been screened on national television shows like ‘20/20’ and ‘The Rosie Show’, where she appeared with Chaz Bono who is a transgender man and a fellow LGBT activist. She has won numerous accolades for the courage she has shown over the years.

She also battled the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) to permit transgender children to play soccer.
