Remember when supermodel Kendall Jenner made a big step from being in front of the camera to going behind it? She did it first for LOVE magazine's issue featuring 15-year-old Kaia Gerber and then an entire cover story.

"I was a little nervous about it but when Katie asked, I thought, why not? In the last two years I've been around so many people who have opened so much up for me. I'm not going to get nervous and p**sy out now," she told The Telegraph when asked about how she felt about working with an up and coming group of creative people.

Although people think that everything Kenny has now was a product of her being part of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, that actually is just the tip of the iceberg. She revealed that when she started modeling, she had to work hard and prove herself just so she'd be taken seriously. Now, she's more confident of what she wants to do and the choices she makes.

"Ive become a different person. I have a lot more confidence that comes from the job," she explains. "Those years from 18 to 21 are the growth years where you really start  to find yourself. I did a lot of that while I was travelling the world, while I was working."

The product of her and the rest of the team's labor were, of course, A+. And we couldn't be prouder of Kenny because we know how difficult it is to be someone and something else in a world that has always painted you to be someone you're not.

What we loved most about what she told Paul Flynn of The Telegraph? How she's taking control of the drama surrounding her life which she did by being behind the camera instead.

"[Cameras] are always there, it's true," she said. "But drama doesn't always happen because you're in the picture. You can make the drama by taking the photo. If I'm in a picture where I'm, say, in a restaurant and some fan catches a photo of me making out with someone? The drama isn't started because I made out with someone. The drama is started because that person took the photo of it. Then they put it on social media."
