Transgender teen Jazz Jennings says being transgender means having the courage to "love yourself no matter what."

Jennings is the co-author of I Am Jazz and the spokesperson for Clean & Clear's new #SeeTheRealMe campaign.

The 14-year-old and her family are the subject of the upcoming TLC reality series All That Jazz

Appearing on HuffPost Live, Jennings explained she shares her story "so that I can help everyone understand that being transgender is normal, and that it's okay to be yourself."

When asked to "sum up what it means to be transgender," Jennings answered: "What it means to be transgender is loving yourself, because you can never fully be a proud transgender individual if you don't find the courage to love who you are no matter what."
