Kendall Jenner, Model, Reality T.V. Star, pens a letter in an open column of the Wall Street Journal detailing her life growing up.
The new face of Estée Lauder penned a short visual into what life is like for the 19 year old star:
“I feel like I grew up too fast a long time ago. Having older siblings, you grow up around adults, so you mature more quickly. I saw my sisters and parents working every day, so I was pretty much brought up to be a workaholic. But I just turned 19 a couple weeks ago, and I’m scared to be 20—it’s the first step out of being a teenager. My sister Khloé always says to me and my younger sister, Kylie: You have your whole life to be an adult but only so long to be a kid. And we get it. In the right situations, I try to be as immature as I can sometimes—react to things as if I were 12. You can’t take things too seriously. I just laugh thinking about my dad being a teenager, partying. It’s the funniest thing. And it makes me think—what am I going to be like when I’m 65?”
Kendall has made a very strong name for herself. She’s walked the runways for some of the top high fashion designers: Chanel, Balmain, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana. She was also recently named one of the 25 most influential teens in 2014 by TIME magazine.
