Fresh off announcing that she’s heading to Harvard in the fall, Jazz Jennings is zeroing in on what she’d like to study.
“I’m really excited to just get into the classroom and acquire as much knowledge as I possibly can,” she told Page Six at Thursday’s Paley Honors, explaining that she’s looking to major in something involving social sciences.
“I gotta tear down every single social construct that ever existed,” she said. “So that’s what I want to do.”
Chatting at the event celebrating stars of the LGBTQ+ community, Jennings told us that she hopes that her fame from her TLC reality show “I Am Jazz,” which follows her life as a transgender girl, will be put aside when she walks onto campus.
“I’m curious to see how that’s going to work out,” she said of possibly being recognized. “I feel like all of my other classmates are going to be just as incredible and amazing in what they do so maybe they won’t bother me at all, and they’ll just be like, ‘She’s just a student here.’”
“I feel like they’re going to treat me like any other college student,” she added.
Her only worry right now is her mom, who joined her at the event, being a “nervous wreck,” but “she has to let me go, you know?”
And as for any career goals, “I want to do some kind of research on a lot of spiritual phenomena, like psychic phenomena, near-death experiences, hypnosis, past life regressions,” she said.
“All that stuff is very intriguing to me and I feel like there’s an answer to consciousness that we haven’t quite understood yet so I want to investigate and piece that together,” she said.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Carson Kressley and Laverne Cox also attended the event that commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.
