Entertainment magnate, Kim Kardashian West, shares her opinion about nepotism when it comes to education.
Being one of the top influential people, Kim Kardashian can get her children to any position of their choice, be it in entertainment, fashion or education. However, while on an interview with CNN’s Van Jones, the reality star revealed that she, as a mother, would never use her influence or wealth to get her kids into college.
According to her, such an action wouldn’t be healthy for them in the long run. She clearly stated:
“If they couldn't get into a school, I would never want to use privilege to try to force them into a situation that they wouldn't thrive in any way. So that's where I just see that that's not appropriate."
"I want my kids to be kind. I want them to be as grounded as possible. And to buy your way into something just wouldn't benefit anybody.”
Her thoughts on the use of influence came weeks after the college scandal. The scandal involved the case of 33 wealthy parents who made illegal payments to get their children into college. Two celebrities, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, were also caught up in the web of the college admission scam.
Kardashian West went on to talk about the fact that she is working towards being her children’s role model. She believes that her achievement should be a point of inspiration for her kids and not a means to exploit power or influence.
The show biz guru said:
“I hope that they get inspired to know that they know they can put in the hard work, and even though I'm in my late thirties and I'm just finishing college, or attempting to do that now, it's never too late, and there really is no easy way out,”
Her legal actions are pleasing, and they have as well got her the approval of Robert Shapiro, a renowned attorney. Shapiro worked on the case of O.J Simpson alongside Kim’s late father, Robert Kardashian. Robert Shapiro said, as he shared his thoughts concerning Kim’s budding career:
"You know what? Once she passes the bar, she'll always have a job at my law firm, I think she'll be a sensational lawyer,”
It is safe to say that taking on a career in law isn’t all that strange with regards to Kim Kardashian because she is taking on her father’s steps.
