Kendall Jenner is the Wall Street Journal's new columnist

Wise words from the teenage model...


For its February issue, The Wall Street Journal Magazine has asked six "luminaries" to give their opinion on youth – with model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner sharing her insight as she grew up in the public eye...

Following in the footsteps of best friend and fellow model Cara Develvingne who was recently appointed as Love Magazine's contributing editor, Kendall Jenner has now been asked to show off her writing skills for the esteemed Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

19-year-old Jenner is one of the six people – including Tim Howard, Goldie Hawn, Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, Dr. Frederic Brandt, and Maira Kalman – who were asked to contribute a quote for WSJ. Magazine's monthly feature called 'The Columnist'.

Although, what Jenner and the five other panelists had to say was nowhere near as detailed as the op-ed Taylor Swift wrote back in July for the publication, the Estée Lauder model did raise some valid points on February's chosen topic of youth.

Jenner penned: "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 Khloé 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?"
