The 38-year-old hopes that she is setting a good example for Kardashian-West kids by becoming a lawyer, despite the fact that she did not receive a bachelors degree. Her goal to become a lawyer has resulted in her sometimes leaving her kids to go into an office "a few days a week" and "studying all the time." While this has been a small sacrifice for the tight-knit family, she hopes that Chicago, Saint and North West will "get inspired that they can put in the hard work."
Kim adds, "Even though I'm in my late 30s and I'm just finish college or attempting to do that now, it's never too late."
On Monday, the star told her fans in an impassioned Instagram post: " 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... 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."
Kim plans on taking the bar exam in 2022 and if her determination over the past year shows anything, it's that she has what it takes to defy the odds. You go, girl!
