Wait….. I know what you are thinking. Kim Kardashian became famous because of her Sex Video with Ray J an American singer, rapper and songwriter.
The sex video was allegedly leaked by her own mother for fame and money and it led the family to get a contract with E for the famous reality TV show keeping up with the Kardashians.
Fast forward a decade later the family grew to be an empire. Members of the Kardashian clan had each own business venture. We have Kylie Jenner who is a beauty mogul herself owning the kylie Cosmetics. She is the richest in the family becoming Forbes youngest billionaire.
The hard-working momager Kris Jenner already divorced from her second husband Bruce Jenner who has now transitioned in Caitlyn Jenner.
We also have Kendall Jenner reported to be the highest paid model of all time. All in all, the family has close to a billion followers in social media. Endorsing every product using that platform is really a smart move.
Becoming a Lawyer
Now, let’s go back to Kim Kardashian West. Kim Married Kanye West a famous rapper. They had their first child North West and had a spectacular engagement held on a football arena with an orchestra and fireworks.
There over the top wedding was in Italy. Kim Kardashian West had been through a lot of scrutinies before.
Moreover, she is still in the process of her second divorce with an NBA player while she had her first child with Kanye West. Kim’s life is really an open book. People had a lot of opinion towards her, her family and the choices that she is making.
In addition, she has still a beauty empire to run. On the other side, she is also juggling the two addition babies via surrogacy.
In an interview with CNN Kim Kardashian West revealed the real reason why she wants to become a lawyer was after her visit from Whitehouse. She discovered the loopholes on the Social Justice of the US government.
Kim was so surprised at how broken the system is. She figured that if she knows more about the system she can do something about the Social Justice System. That is the type of person she is. If it interests her she will go for it and she later enrolled in a Law School.
Kim’s father was also a famous Lawyer Robert Kardashian. He had a famous because he is one of the defense Attorneys of OJ Simpson.
And this is what she posted on Instagram @kimkardashian
“Last year I registered with the California State Bar to study law. For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple choice tests monthly.
As my first year is almost coming to an end I am preparing for the baby bar, a mini version of the bar, which is required when studying law this way. I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case.
One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are.
This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it. It’s true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in “reading the law”, which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not.
My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me.
I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine – It’s never too late to follow your dreams.
I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson.
Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck”
Kims dedication towards her craft is never-ending. Even though she started hard in Hollywood she was still able to reach her goals and continue to grow moving forward.
