FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida -- For as long as she can remember, Jazz says she felt different. The 13-year-old was born a boy, but loved all things mermaid, pink and princesses.
"I felt like a girl and I felt uncomfortable in my body," Jazz said.
Jazz, who goes only by her first name out of fear of threats, told her parents the moment she could speak she was not a boy.
According to Jazz, the journey has been difficult, but in an effort to help others understand what being transgender means, the teen co-authored a children's book.
