Reality TV star Kendall Jenner says she faced obstacles and bias from people in the fashion industry when she first started modelling.
The 19-year-old model has posed for the latest issue of V magazine in a black and white shot wearing slinky top, reported E!Online.
"You have no idea how many doors closed on me and how many adults were either initially reluctant to take a chance working with me or who outright laughed at me behind my back," Kendall Jenner said.
"It was kind of hard because all I was doing was going on go-sees, trying my best to break into this business as a teenager. I am so grateful to Marc Jacobs, Riccardo Tisci, Karl Lagerfeld, and Katie Grand, who took a chance on me that first season and gave me an opportunity. My parents taught me that work ethic is one of the most important keys in life, and I believe it," Kendall added.
