Kim Kardashian broke the internet for the right reasons this time when she announced that she was studying to become a lawyer.
The news was of course not well received by all as her millions of critics said she would, of course, ace it simply because she was rich and was born into privilege.
The criticism finally got to her and the mother of three has come out to reveal the hustle she is going through (like many of us) to achieve her lawyer dream which she embarked on last year.
“I’ve seen some sick comments from people who are saying it’s privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.”
Kim, who will study law for five years, says she dedicates a minimum of 18 years a week and has to take written and multiple choice tests monthly. According to Kanye West’s wife her fame and wealth have not bought her any privileges as she has had to make drastic changes to her life.
“The state bar doesn’t care who you are…. 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 dream.
Of course, the fashion mogul had some inspirational words to give her millions of followers.
” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit the pursuit of your dreams and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am.”
Kim enrolled in the California State bar last year and will soon be done with her first year of study.
