Why Kourtney is the Kardashian You want to be

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at CWU chapter.

It is no doubt that every product of Kris Jenner is genetic and pop culture gold. When constantly faced with the ever taxing question of “{Who’s your fave Kardashian/Jenner” I always have to go with Kourt.


She stands up for what she believes in

If you haven’t kept up to date with the Kardashians for the last few seasons, you would know that Kourt is completely dedicated to health and wellness. Her recent trip to DC to advocate for safe ingredients in cosmetics shows her commitment to natural, organic products. It shows her contribution in the cosmetics industry from a different perspective than her sisters.


She teaches people how to treat her

Even though that vocal tone is full blown monotone 90% of the time, we all know how Kourtney is feeling and most importantly, her opinion.


She’s educated

Kourtney spent a couple of years at SMU before graduating with a degree in Theatre Arts and Spanish from Arizona State. We wouldn’t have pegged Kourt as a literary drama queen but it is easy to see where she finds her inspiration. But she is one of the few Kardashians to finish higher education. Obviously they’re all doing just fine without but there’s no such thing as too much knowledge.


She has never loses her identity

A turning point for Kourtney was when her and her sisters were coming out with apps and she felt left on the back burner. Everyone assumed hers was going to be all about “being a mom” and other stereotypical things associated with motherhood. Kourtney stepped up and made it clear that she is her own person and although she is happy to be a mom she has other things to contribute. I think that not only resonated with her sisters

She stands up to social norms

Kourtney knows what she wants and has no interest entertaining the things that she doesn’t. For example, when she had three kids and everyone thought she should get married to her baby daddy Lord Disick, she sure didn’t.

When she dated a guy 5 years younger than him and is now dating a guy 15 years younger than her, she lets the media say whatever they want while she and her beau spend April in Turks and Caicos and her birthday in the California mountains.


Basically what we’re trying to say is if you can be anything be kind. If you aspire to be any Kardashian, be Kourtney.
