Kim Kardashian West is more than just an incredibly famous pretty face. She's a mom, a makeup mogul, a reality TV star, and maybe someday soon, a lawyer.

Kim has been involved with social justice issues and prison reform for quite some time now and began attending law school in recent years to aid in these efforts. She recently opened up about how difficult this new endeavor has been for her and what she has had to do to maintain it.

Kim has done a lot of good with her law reform efforts over the past few years. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star visited the White House to advocate for the release of Alice Johnson, who was given a life sentence for a drug trafficking charge.

Alice was released and Kim continued to meet with White House staff to talk about ways prison sentencing could be changed and what issues could be addressed. She works with an organization to fight for the release of inmates struggling with unfair charges.

After finding success in her law efforts, Kim found a new passion in life. The media mogul immediately set out to learn all she could about the law and the processes that go on behind it. She enrolled in law school and is currently studying to take the bar exam.

Working attorneys have commended Kim's curiosity and professionalism in the past. She has been applauded for her understanding of these issues and firms have said Kim could have a job waiting for her when she graduates.

No Distraction

Being a working mother and going back to school isn't easy for anyone. Kim says she has had to make a lot of sacrifices to in order to pull focus on her law studies.

The Keeping Up With Kardashians star says she changed her phone number and no longer goes out to events or movies with her friends, though she says they understand why she needs to buckle down. Kim still makes it a point to schedule date nights with husband Kanye West and works during school hours so she can have mornings and dinner with her kids.

Kim thinks her passion for law is in her genes. Her father, Robert Kardashian, famously defended -- and struggled with his beliefs on -- the OJ Simpson trial. The makeup mogul has previously said she believes she grew an affinity for justice during that period, as her then-teenaged self would sneak through her father's things and would read the evidence for the trial.

North West, Kim's daughter, could follow in her family's footsteps. North was in attendance at one of Kim's White House visits.
