Kim Kardashian inspires many as she gets closer to becoming a lawyer by passing baby bar exam
Kim Kardashian is one step closer to becoming a lawyer as she has passed her baby bar exam!
The entrepreneur and reality TV star, 41, has been studying to become a lawyer for the past couple of years and had failed the baby bar exam three times before her victory. She now needs to pass one more exam in order to qualify as a lawyer in the State of California.
Taking to her social media, Kim wrote: “For anyone who doesn’t know my law school journey, know this wasn’t easy or handed to me. I failed this exam 3 times in 2 years, but I got back up each time and studied harder and tried again until I did it!!! (I did have COVID on the 3rd try with a 104 fever but I’m not making excuses)
“In California, the way I’m studying law you need to take 2 bar exams, this was just the first one but with the harder pass rate. I was told by top lawyers that this was a close to impossible journey and harder than the traditional law school route but it was my only option and it feels so so sooooo good to be here and on my way to achieving my goals.”
Speaking about her father, she added: “I know my dad would be so proud and he would actually be so shocked to know that this is my path now but he would have been my best study partner. I am told he was notorious for making fun of people who didn’t pass on their first attempt like he did, but he would have been my biggest cheerleader!”
Kim’s father Robert Kardasian passed away in 2003. He was a lawyer who fought on the OJ Simpson 1995 murder trial.
“Bottom line is don’t ever give up even when you are holding on by a thread, you can do it!!!!! Set your mind to it and get it done because it feels soooooo good once you get to the other side,” she continued.
In recent years, Kim has been fighting for prison reform by meeting with governors, writing letters in support of clemency petitions and paying legal bills.
Her work has been such a force that in 2020, former President Donald Trump granted then 65-year-old Alice Marie Johnson a full pardon after serving over 20 years in prison for a first-time drug offence.
Kim shares four children with music artist Kanye West who she married in 2014. Earlier this year, it was announced that she was filing for divorce.
