Kim Kardashian Made a Subtle Change That Fans Think Makes Her More Powerful

Kim Kardashian has changed a lot since Keeping Up With the Kardashians first aired in 2007. Back then, she was just a 27-year-old California girl trying to make a name for herself.

However, today, she is one of the biggest celebrities in the world. In the past several years, Kardashian also got married and welcomed four children into the world.

Recently, Kardashian seems to have also changed herself in a new way, and fans have been reacting positively to it. Read on below to find out what Kardashian did and why fans think it makes her a more powerful woman.

Fans think Kim Kardashian speaks more ‘eloquently’ these days

Many long-time viewers of Keeping Up With the Kardashians are familiar with the unique way that Kardashian speaks. However, these fans are noticing that Kardashian no longer speaks with such an obvious “Valley girl” accent like before. Instead, she seems to have tone down her usual way of speaking and actually sounds more “eloquent” to fans.

A user on Reddit noted: “I think a lot of it has to do with her taking the law courses, there’s a lot of public speaking involved and her mentors most likely prompted Kim to go through this process of learning to speak more eloquently. I noticed that her main mentor, Jessica [Jackson], is very well spoken.”

“I think it’s just growing up. She’s really shifted into powerful woman Kim now,” another Reddit user pointed out. “Also when you have little children who are learning to talk you become very conscious of speaking properly because they mimic you so it might be that too.”

Kim Kardashian used to be known for her uptalk and vocal fry

For years, Kardashian has been credited with popularizing the “Valley girl” accent among young people. She was mostly known for her uptalk — rising intonation in sentences that are not questions. She was also known for her vocal fry, which is a creaky, low voice in certain words.

While many people who speak like Kardashian are not necessarily less intelligent, uptalking and vocal frying has been associated with middle-class girls from California who are thought to be vapid and airheaded. It’s an unfair stereotype. As such, people who want to be taken seriously in more professional environments are often discouraged from speaking like this.

Kim Kardashian wants to eventually give up fame and focus on being a lawyer

Since September 2018, Kardashian has been doing an apprenticeship at a law firm and studying for the California bar exam, which she is planning on taking in 2022.

Kardashian’s law studies came after she successfully helped free inmates like Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced to serve many years in prison on nonviolent drug offenses. Working closely with people who have been negatively affected by the country’s justice system made Kardashian realize that there was a lot of work to be done and that she also had the potential to fix things.

Kardashian said of her decision to become a lawyer: “I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”

Kardashian once shared that she was “embarrassingly obsessed” with fame in the early 2000s, but now that she is one of the biggest celebrities in the world, her outlook on life has changed. On an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that aired earlier this year, Kardashian admitted that her goal right now is “in 10 years, to give up being Kim K and just focus on this and be an attorney and fight for so many deserving people.”
