Instagram post by @kimkardashian Kim Kardashian West

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 ✨⚖️

    @liv_1379 you are entitled to your opinion as everyone is. Oh, and the correct spelling is “preposterous”. Stay in school , study hard, and don’t take any shortcuts✌🏽

    @tbizzle_sizzle hmm. SO MANY PEOPLEwork hard to get from 3 kids and no college degree to college degree. Privileged or not. Stop downplaying their efforts by making it sound like it’s impossible. It isn’t. It’s hard work. Something you seem to not know anything about.

    @brennaariane PS at the end of all of this Kim Kardashian still won’t have a degree...my point exactly 😂💁🏾‍♀️

    Shocked by the negative comments here. When will we support each other instead of complaining about everything we don’t have?

    @tbizzle_sizzle but why be rude and discount anyone for trying? If all you’re seeking is to make a point, okay. But your loss for constantly seeing the bad in everyone.

    @brennaariane you literally said I know nothing about hard work...the rude tone started with you/your complete twisting of my point.

    This should be a hard and arduous journey, but certainly not impossible.
    Best of luck.

    @brennaariane I think you’re missing the point of what @tbizzle_sizzle is saying. She simply saying - why is Kim acting as if her status / privilege have not played a part here!

    @thefridayblogs she’s already done those! 😂😂

    To become a lawyer, you must go to Law school and get the right education and tools to advocate the law and help your clients. There are no short cuts about it. Follow the steps your late father took to become a defence lawyer. Well done and good luck! My 21 year old daughter graduated with first class 2:1 with Honours last year. It took her 3 years of hard work; sleepless nights, emotional and physical stress, sacrifices etc
