Kendall Jenner Says Kardashian Name Hindered Her Early Modeling Career

Kendall Jenner claims her affiliation with the Kardashian name was actually a hindrance when she first began her modeling career. Jenner makes the assertion in a new interview with <i>Vogue </i>Australia. She says that after becoming part of the reality TV show <i>Keeping Up With The Kardashians</i> at age 11, she had to rebrand herself to avoid being judged or dismissed based on family connections. Jenner reveals that she even adopted the pseudonym “K” during castings to hide her famous name. “A lot of people assumed that because I came from a ‘name’ that it was a lot easier for me to get where I got,” she reveals. “But actually, it’s the complete opposite.” Photographer Russell James adds, “100 percent of Kendall Jenner’s success is actually 100 percent Kendall, because she’s so damn motivated.”
