14-year-old Jazz Jennings announced earlier this week that she will be the new face of Clean and Clear's "See The Real Me" campaign.

If you're not familiar with Jennings, she's been a transgender activist for the last few years, writing a children's book and speaking across the country. Jennings speaks openly about transitioning at such a young age - she was six when she began transitioning and is generally regarded as one of the youngest children diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria.

In 2014, Jennings told Fusion's Alicia Menendez, "As soon as I could talk. I really just expressed myself as a girl." Jennings also has her own YouTube channel where she speaks openly about the challenges of being a trans teenager.

On participating in the Clean and Clear campaign, Jennings told the Huffington Post:

"I feel really honored to be part of The #seetherealme campaign. It's really amazing, as it helps many teen girls who are struggling. It helps them to find themselves and be true to who they are. I hope they can learn to be brave and not care what other people think about them, because if they just stay positive and spread love, then others will be true friends who will accept them no matter what."
