Kendall Jenner, 26, reveals she took on too many jobs when she started modeling at 14


Kendall Jenner worked very hard when she first started modeling at age 14.

And then the 26-year-old felt burned out as she had little time for herself once she signed contracts with Calvin Klein and walked the runway for Chanel while traveling the globe.

‘The things that I accomplished, even my job, at one point when I was younger, I decided I wanted to be a model. I didn’t stop until I was 24, then I was like, “Okay I think I need to take it back a notch,”‘ she told Jay Shetty on the On Purpose podcast.

Jenner first started modeling at age 14.

The year was 2009 when Keeping Up With The Kardashians was new. Her mother Kris Jenner landed her an agent at Wilhelmina and they booked her in an ad for Forever 21. 

She also landed on the cover of American Cheerleader. The star was already a cheerleader in high school so it was a good fit.

Her big break was when she was hired to be the face of Estee Lauder, which led to her signing with Calvin Klein.

From there she worked for Versace, Fendi and Chanel. 

‘There was a core five years where I was extremely overworked, not my happiest, and I felt like I was saying yes to everything because I felt really grateful to be in the position I was in,’ she said as she was likely referring to a very busy time from age 19 to 24.

And the girlfriend of basketball star Devin Booker admits that her new approach has transformed her life.

She said: ‘I just wasn’t happy anymore so I had to set those boundaries for myself.

‘Everything else is just noise.’

The brunette beauty also confessed to feeling ‘extremely overworked’ in her early twenties and admitted that stepping back has done ‘wonders’ for her.
