TELL EM’, GIRL!: Kim Kardashian Responds To “Stay In Your Lane” Shade Surrounding Lawyer Ambitions – “Nothing Should Limit Your Pursuit of Your Dreams”

Kim Kardashian gives us #MotivationMonday with inspiring dream chasing post

Kim Kardashian’s lobbying efforts surrounding prison reform sparked much chatter these past few years. Her sit-down with 45th US president Donald Trump was step one to granting freedom via clemency to former inmates Alice Marie Johnson, Matthew Charles and viral case, Cyntoia Brown. Her success in such endeavours even got folks calling Ms. Kardashian West the “Prison Reform Princess.”

In an interview with Extra, Kanye West applauded his wife’s good deeds and was first to announce Kim was going to law school. Though the statement was then considered another one of Kanye’s verbal faux pas, Kim Kardashian later confirmed its validity. Today, in an uplifting Instagram post, the reality TV star explained how her deep involvement in criminal justice reform has inspired her to pursue a legal career. In the thick of previous allegations surrounding her new goal, Kim faced harsh clap back from the public. While nay-sayers urged Kim to “stay in her lane,” others accused her of using fame and financial privilege to by-pass the regular Juris Doctor acquisition process. 

“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.”

Furthermore, the mother of three insisted on letting the world know she meant serious business and remained adamant about earning her stripes the regular way.
“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.”

It is important to consider Kim’s track record does show a commitment to fight for the underprivileged and socially disadvantaged, populations which may solely benefit from additional support. Hence, we can only wish Kim K. best of luck.

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 ✨⚖️
