Kendall Jenner: 'I grew up too fast'

hellomagazine.com
Kendall Jenner has revealed that she feels she grew up too fast. The 19-year-old model and reality TV star, who has walked catwalks around the world and was recently announced as the new face of Estée Lauder, says that growing up in a hard-working family inspired her to take on a lot from an early age.

"I feel like I grew up too fast a long time ago," she wrote in an editorial for the Wall Street Journal. "Having older siblings, you grow up around adults, so you mature more quickly."

Kendall's modelling career is thriving

Kendall, whose parents are Bruce and Kris Jenner and whose half sisters are the famous Kardashian sisters, Kourtney, Kim and Khloé, says that her family's hard-working nature rubbed off on her when she was growing up.

"I saw my sisters and parents working every day, so I was pretty much brought up to be a workaholic," she wrote. "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."

Kendall described how 30-year-old Khloé reminds her of her youth and often tells her and her younger sister Kylie to enjoy being young while they can.

"In the right situations, I try to be as immature as I can sometimes and react to things as if I were 12," she said. "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?'"

Kendall was chosen by the Wall Street Journal to discuss the topic of youth alongside five other 'luminaries' who included: Goldie Hawn, footballer Tim Howard, pschology professor Jeffrey Arnett, scincare brand creator Dr. Fredric Brandt and writer Maira Kalman.
