Kim Kardashian West, who is Vogue’s May cover star has dropped a major life announcement by revealing she’s studying to become a Lawyer.

She’s currently doing a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm and hopes to take the bar exam in 2022.

The mother of three, who has been working with author and CNN commentator Van Jones and attorney Jessica Jackson, cofounders of #cut50, a national bipartisan advocacy group on criminal-justice reform revealed this during her cover interview for this month’s Vogue.

“I had to think long and hard about this,” she said. The choice came from the combination of “seeing a really good result” with Alice Marie Johnson while simultaneously feeling like she couldn’t help enough. “The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, shit. I need to know more.

“I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people and I’ve always known my role, but 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.”

Kim’s decision was inspired by her work helping to free Alice Marie Johnson last year after President Donald Trump commuted her life sentence.

“The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, shit. I need to know more,” she told Vogue. “I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society.
