With prison reform being one of her many passions, last year Kardashian West, 38, successfully petitioned President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence Alice Marie Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender.
Following Johnson's release, reform legislation was passed in Congress and signed into law by Trump in December.
Pretty impressive for a woman who got her start as Paris Hilton's closet cleaner!
Of her decision to pursue a career in law, Kardashian credits her work freeing Johnson.
“I never in a million years thought we would get to the point of getting laws passed,” she says. “That was really a turning point for me.”
According to PEOPLE, Kardashian West's ambition to further educate herself on the law comes after being sought to advise the White House: “The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency.
“And I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, s—. I need to know more.”
Kardashian West continued: “It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society.
"I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”
