“I don’t want to be put in a box” –Reality Star Mom, Kim Kardashian On Her Decision To Become A Lawyer | WATCH

Mum-of-three and fashion mogul, Kim Kardashian West, earlier in the year, revealed that she began an apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer and wants to take the California bar exam in 2022.

In a recent interview with CNN‘s Van Jones, the reality TV star, 38, opened up about why she has decided to become a lawyer.

The 38-year-old socialite was instrumental in the release of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old woman who’d been in an Alabama prison on a nonviolent drug charge since 1996. After her meeting with Donald Trump at the White House to discuss prison reform, Alice was granted clemency.

After this experience, the American socialite says she was inspired to become a lawyer herself, despite the criticism and mockery she knew was coming. She told Van Jones:

“I know I got so many times people would say to me, ‘Don’t go to the White House, your career will be over, don’t go there.’ And I just kind of weighed the decision where it was like … to save a life or to get maybe bad tweets about me or a bad news story for a few days.

I guarantee you the people sitting behind bars do not care who the president is. They just want that relief. And so if I could have done that, I don’t care.”

Kim added that during the process of getting Alice out of prison, she discovered that the “system is broken” and she didn’t know much about it. She said she took the step to know more about the system so as to contribute her quota to fixing it.

After revealing her plans to become a lawyer, social media went bonkers, and she noted the disdain, adding that she does not “want to be put in a box.” She added:

“I don’t want to be put in a box. I saw a comment where someone said, ‘You need to stay in your lane.

You can have ambitions but don’t be too ambitious.’ And to me, that was that kind of like ‘shut up and dribble’ comment to where … I read it to my husband in bed, and I was just like, ‘This will even push me harder’”.

Her husband, Kanye West, and the rest of her family are all supportive of her. She said:

“Coming home, I have my backpack. [My kids] have their backpack. They’re studying, I’m studying. And them seeing that I have this filming career and I’m having makeup samples tested all over my arm while I’m trying to read my flashcards … I hope that they get inspired to know that they can put in the hard work.”

Her late father, Robert Kardashian, who represented O.J Simpson, is one of her inspirations for becoming a lawyer.

“It’s in me,” Kardashian said.
