A Closer Look at Kim Kardashian West’s Inspiring Transformation From Reality Star to Future Lawyer
Reality star Kim Kardashian West has done a lot of things that surprised her fans. But she outdid herself this year upon the announcement of her decision to become a lawyer.
While her announcement met mixed reactions from the public, Kardashian West seems to be determined to accomplish her new goal. After all, the profession kind of runs in the family with her own father being the famous defense lawyer who represented O.J. Simpson in one of the most talked-about trials in Hollywood.
But, how did the self-proclaimed selfie queen came to this decision?
Looking back on Kardashian West’s beginnings, one may say that she has a natural knack for business and dealing with people. Her first job was actually at her father, Robert Kardashian Sr.’s law office. It was at this time that she discovered eBay and the profitability of buying and selling luxury goods.
With a loan from her dad, the then-teenage reality star bought five pairs of Manolo Blahnik shoes with a promise that she’ll pay him back with interest. And she successfully did. According to Kardashian West, she bought the shoes for $700 a pair but was able to sell them for $2,500 on eBay.
This started her obsession with selling clothes and shoes which then led to her starting her own fashion boutique in 2006. With help from sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, the middle Kardashian opened DASH in their home Calabasas, California.
And in case you didn’t know, it was actually Kardashian West’s idea to create their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians as a way to promote DASH.
The show proved to be an instant hit among audiences and turned the Kardashian-Jenner clan into overnight stars. It’s now on its 16th season and shows no signs of fading.
Due to their popularity, the family was able to create and expand their own brands from workout DVDs, fashion collaborations, spin-off shows and makeup. The mother of three even created her own app and iPhone game Kimoji and Kim Kardashian Hollywood, both of which earned millions.
What more, Kardashian West can now add New York Times Bestselling ‘author’ to her achievements with the success of her coffee table book of selfies, Selfish. But her most profitable venture to date is still her own makeup line, KKW Beauty. Launched in 2017, the line’s first product was so in demand, they were sold out just minutes after their release.
Never Too Late
And now, the star is set to take on a new path in her career. After seeing the injustice within the American justice system first hand, Kardashian West has decided to become a lawyer starting with an apprenticeship at a San Francisco firm.
She is currently studying for her baby bar exams which will determine if she can continue on with her studies. If things go as planned, Kardashian West is set to take the California Bar Exams in 2022.
