She was recently in the limelight for her NSFW tape which was released in 2007 featuring the star and her former boyfriend Ray J.
Kim Kardashian Expressed Her Opinions on Storytelling at a Recent Summit
The 41-year-old socialite Kim Kardashian was recently featured in a session at Propper Daley Summit along with the lineup including Uzo Aduba, Chrissy Teigen, B.J. Novak, and director and producer Scott Budnick as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
She and Budnick shared their opinion with host Baratunde Thurston for a How to Get Sh!t Done in a Divided America panel. The duo is a longtime advocate for prison reform after discovering how broken the system is, particularly for people of color. The discussion revolved around to influence future onscreen storylines and helping maintain narrative authenticity.
The socialite shared her opinion on the importance of storytelling when Budnick shared, “What I realized in the five years of running that nonprofit that it was all about storytelling — all men and women, boys and girls that I’ve worked with was all about telling their stories and humanizing.”
The mother of four shared, “I think that storytelling is so important because people always ask, ‘How can you help? What can you do?’,” adding, “Someone once said to me, ‘Why are you working on one case? Work on the policy.’ And I said to them, ‘If you don’t put a face with this rap sheet and you don’t understand’ — people just want safety in the community, they want to feel that way.”
Giving an insight on how a story can help understand them, she stated, “Unless you hear their story, unless you’ve heard where they’ve come from and where they’re at now, you won’t feel safe if you just read a piece of paper. So the storytelling aspect is so important to get the policy to be able to push through.”
The reality star had long been passionate about criminal reform and has expressed her frustration with a system she believes is broken. She began to express her thoughts on social media that the imprisoned individual had not been treated fairly.
Kim Kardashian’s Strict Rule As an Aspiring Lawyer
The SKIMS founder back in 2019 announced her decision to pursue law to continue her efforts in improving the U.S. criminal justice system. The makeup mogul back in 2021 announced passing California’s baby bar exam after attempting it four times.
She shared how she abides by a strict rule to balance her law career and her business stating, “I pretty much have a rule where I’ll take on 10 cases at a time and I can’t really go above that.” To become a practicing lawyer, she must qualify for the California bar exam and shared her desire to take the bar exam in 2022.
