Kendall Jenner Writes for Wall Street Journal

Kendall Jenner is one such teen celebrity that certainly seems to divide opinion. Some adore her, aspiring to be like her, while others figure she was handed her career on a plate (Kim Kardashian herself has been quoted as saying she bought her a career) and is nothing more than a pretty, spoiled brat. She herself has publicly defended her work ethic and the fact that, in her opinion, her family background wasn’t the only thing necessary for her modelling success.

Whichever side of the fence you find yourself, there’s no denying that she’s turning heads. So of the moment is Miss Jenner, The Wall Street Journal bestowed upon her an opportunity that other writers wait a lifetime for: the chance to write a guest column in the peerless publication.

Kendall features as one of the six luminaries for a special in the magazine’s monthly feature ‘The Columnists’. For this, she shares some words on her experience of youth. But given that she doesn’t read whatsoever (she admits this herself), we’re not expecting any hyperbolic pearls of wisdom. Here goes:

“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 Khlo? 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?”

Do you remember that fear of leaving your teens behind?
