Be Motivated By Mom-Of-3, Kim Kardashian’s Post On Pursuing Her Dream To Study Law

Businesswoman, Kim Kardashian -West is one of the celebrities that gets the most backlash on social media and even offline and when she announced that she was studying to become a lawyer, she got more.

In a recent interview with Vogue, it was disclosed that the mumpreneur did not complete college, but she can, in fact, still become a lawyer because the state of California, where she resides, offers a backdoor of sorts, known as “reading the law.”

This system, according to information gathered involves a 4-year apprenticeship under a practicing lawyer, and Kim is currently finishing up her first year. Under these auspices, business mogul spends a minimum of 18 hours a week, five of which are supervised with her mentors.

However, the reality TV star and mother-of-three, in a new Instagram post has opened up about her experience studying for the baby bar, responding to the doubters telling her to “stay in her lane” on Instagram.

She also talked about why it’s important for everyone to pursue their dreams and “create your own lanes” when people try to limit you.

Below is Kim’s full post:

”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 whose 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.
