Kendall Jenner is reportedly turning up early and staying late on modelling jobs to prove herself worthy.
The 18-year-old half sibling of the Kardashian sisters has been catapulted into the limelight since walking for Marc Jacobs during New York Fashion Week in February. She also took to the catwalk for other brands such as Givenchy and Chanel, and has gone on to grace the cover of various fashion publications.
Having grown up on reality TV in popular show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kendall is said to be keen to move away from the small screen. Instead she is putting all her energy into her budding career.
"Kendall has zero interest in being a TV star like Kim, so why continue to shoot their shows?" an insider told British magazine Look. "She's having to learn at a very young age to put her career first and feels like she's having to work extra hard to prove she's not a diva because of her family's reputation. She shows up 15 minutes early to everything, stays late, works hard. This is her dream."
She may be shunning her relatives' chosen area of fame, but that's not to say they aren't backing the teenager on her journey. Kendall is reportedly keeping busy landing new jobs, while her family cheer her on from the sidelines.
"Kendall is booking more and more modelling gigs and she has her sights firmly set on the world of high fashion. So after seeking advice from new friends in the industry, she knows she needs to step away from the reality TV world to succeed," the insider continued. "She's told her mom Kris that she'll have to distance herself from the Kardashian franchise before she becomes too associated with their fame. Kendall's family support her 100 percent."
