Kim Kardashian West is currently pursuing a degree in law and studying to take the bar exam in 2022, and as she preps for a new career move, she’s proving her continued devotion to working towards prison reform.
Kim made headlines when she helped release Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced for a nonviolent drug charge, and now she’s sharing how she assisted in freeing an inmate who had “served 22 years of a life sentence for a low level drug case.”
Kim wrote on Twitter on Friday, “We did it again! Had the best call w/this lovely family & my attorney @msbkb who just won release for their loved one Jeffrey in Miami - he served 22 years of life sentence for low level drug case. He served too much time but it gives me so much joy to fund this life saving work.”
Kim opened up about lawyerly aspirations on Sunday’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” revealing that her 10 year plan could potentially mean giving up her “Kim K” status to fully commit to being an attorney.
“My dad always taught me that hard work is really important and to really commit to things, so my goal would be in like, 10 years, to give up being Kim K and just focus on this and be an attorney and fight for so many deserving people,” she revealed.
Even though Kim expressed an early interest in criminal justice, her father Robert Kardashian warned her that the career choice was a lot of stress to take on. Following the release of Alice Marie Johnson, Kim felt motivated to move forward on a professional path that includes a law degree and fighting “for people who deserve a second chance.”
