Kendall Jenner reveals why she thinks her name made it even harder to succeed in modeling

While many assume that Kendall Jenner had a leg up on her competition when making it big in the fashion industry thanks to her Kardashian family name, Kendall believes otherwise.

In a recent interview with Vogue Australia, Kendall discussed her modeling career, saying that, if anything, coming from a prominent family made it even harder to break into the industry.

“But I’ve always been the person to prove [critics] wrong, even when I was younger,” she said. “I’ve always been a hard worker: that’s in my blood. My parents raised me and my little sister to be that way and the rest of my sisters, too. A lot of people assumed that because I came from a ‘name’ that it was a lot easier for me to get to where I got, but actually it’s the completely opposite.” 

Kendall also said that her rise in the fashion world didn’t happen overnight.

“Most of the time [this business] is all about new faces and it happens really fast. They kind of grab onto that person and then all of a sudden you take off and you’re doing a bunch of shows and you’re getting a bunch of jobs,” she said. “So for me it was that initial two to three seasons where I was like: ‘Oh wow, people are feeling me’, but my goal with everything is always longevity. In this industry specifically, it can be really challenging to maintain, so it’s always a work in progress.” 

As for whether she’s ever had a backup plan in case modeling didn’t work out, Kendall said:

 “No. And I don’t think I necessarily needed to have one. Anything I do, I always want to be 100 per cent in it and know I want to be doing it. When I started I was so young, so if it didn’t work out then I was going to figure it out. I’d cross that bridge when I got there.”

“I am still so young,” she said. “People are always asking me: ‘What’s next? What’s next?’ I’m like: ‘Why do I have to have it all figured out right now?’ Most people my age don’t have it figured out as much as I do.”
