'Create Your Own Lane And Pursue Your Dreams'- Kim Kardashian Says In Heartfelt Post On Studying To Become A Lawyer

Lawyer in the making: Kim Kardashian pictured with her study buds

For some time now, rumour mills have been rife with the story that reality star and business woman Kim Kardashian is studying to become a Lawyer. Talk show host Wendy Williams even mentioned it during her hot topics last week.

Now, the mother of three has confirmed the stories, opening up about how hard she’s working to get her degree. She revealed that she was able to get into the California State Bar on merit and not by her privilege or money.

The 38 year old star added that the experience has been overwhelming, but support from her mentors, family and friends has kept her going.

She also encouraged her fans to let nothing limit the pursuit of their dreams, saying that ‘you can create your own lane’ like she did, when faced with discouragement and detractors.

Read her full post below:

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 who’s 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.

I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson. Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck ✨⚖️
