Kendall Jenner Is Now A Wall Street Journal Magazine Columnist

For its February issue, The Wall Street Journal Magazine asked six "luminaries" to weigh in on the topic of youth. One such guiding light: model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner.

As a newly minted columnist for the publication, it's worth noting that Jenner, the self-proclaimed "worst reader, you guys," openly employed a ghostwriter to pen a dystopian teen novel that no one bothered to read.

Of course, as a teenager, she does seem suited to weigh in on the topic of youth. Here's what Jenner had to say on the subject:

I feel like I grew up too fast a long time ago. Having older siblings, you grow up around adults, so you mature more quickly. I saw my sisters and parents working every day, so I was pretty much brought up to be a workaholic. But I just turned 19 a couple weeks ago, and I’m scared to be 20 -- it’s the first step out of being a teenager. My sister Khloé always says to me and my younger sister, Kylie: You have your whole life to be an adult but only so long to be a kid. And we get it. In the right situations, I try to be as immature as I can sometimes -- react to things as if I were 12. You can’t take things too seriously. I just laugh thinking about my dad being a teenager, partying. It’s the funniest thing. And it makes me think -- what am I going to be like when I’m 65?
