Kardashian has been working for many years now. When she was in high school, her parents urged her to get a job as well.

As Kardashian shared on the podcast Role Model, she attended Alexandria Academy, which is different from a traditional school. The academy gives students one-on-one attention, and this allowed Kardashian to thrive. She eventually graduated early and with honors.

At Alexandria Academy, Kardashian had a lot of time outside of school, so her parents made her get a job.

“My parents were like, “Okay, if you’re gonna not be in a full-time school, you have to work,” she explained. “So it wasn’t like a free-for-all.”

Kardashian shared that she got a job at a clothing store called Magnolia in Calabasas, California. She said, “I cleaned the backroom, and that was my job.”
