Since Kendall Jenner has been in the public eye for over seven years now, it's easy to forget that she's only 19 years old. Based on some recent comments, it sounds like she's having the same problem.
A new column in The Wall Street Journal finds the reality star-turned-runway model sharing her thoughts on youth. She's joined by writer Maira Kalman, soccer player Tim Howard, psych professor Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, dermatologist Fredric Brandt and
actress icon Goldie Hawn.
"I feel like I grew up too fast a long time ago," Kendall writes. "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."
She also shares some valuable advice one of her older sisters, Khloé Kardashian, gave her: "You have your whole life to be an adult but only so long to be a kid... 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."
You know what? She's right. I am hereby going to stop beating myself for not being a top-tier runway model by the time I turned 20. A new day dawns today.
