21-year-old Kyle Jenner covers Germany’s Interview mag she spoke to Sarah Delgado.

Interview DE: You always knew you wanted to be a young mother. Now that Stormi is one, how has motherhood changed you?

Kylie Jenner: Yes, I always knew I wanted to be a young mother. I remember people used to ask, “are you ready for this?” And I always knew I was ready but you don’t know what that love and that feeling is like until after you have a child. She really comes before me so that is a lot to take in at a young age but I feel like I was definitely made for this and she has changed my life for the better. The way that I look at things is a lot more positive and I really feel like my life didn’t start until I had her.

IDE: Do you want more kids soon?

KJ: I do want more kids but I do not have any plans in the near future to have children right now.

IDE: Do you consider yourself a role model?

KJ: I feel like I felt a lot more pressure to become a role model when I had my daughter because I know she’s going to look up to me and I want to be the best example I can be.

IDE: Do the news cycle and social media comments affect your everyday life?

KJ: I can’t remember the day when I didn’t have millions of people telling me their opinion on everything that I do, so I have no idea what it would be like for that not to happen. It does get to me sometimes but I feel like God put me in this position because he knew that I could handle it.

IDE: Even if sometimes hurtful, social media has been rather helpful in your career. What would you do if it did not exist for a day?

KJ: Honestly, I would love to just put my phone away and live in the moment.

IDE: Kylie Cosmetics has officially turned you into a beauty billionaire, and the youngest self-made billionaire in history. How does that feel?

KJ: I never thought that this could happen. I believed in Kylie Cosmetics but I didn’t even know what I was getting myself into. It feels amazing, it’s wild, and being the youngest ever to do it is a blessing. I now want to focus on giving back to people and doing things that I’m passionate about.

IDE: A lot of people feel like the term “self-made” is not 100% accurate in your case…

KJ: There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth. That is the category that I fall under. Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100% of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that.

IDE: What do you see next for the company? Are you looking into other entrepreneurial ventures?

KJ: Yes, I have so many amazing projects coming out this year. One, in particular, I’m very excited about. I can’t share too much now but you guys are just going to have to wait and see! As for Kylie Cosmetics though, I just want to keep expanding and touch other parts of the world.

IDE: On top of all that, you’ve been on KUWTK for 12 years. Do you think you’ll ever subject your kid to reality TV?

KJ: I am going to wait until she is old enough to make that decision for herself.

IDE: Lastly, what do you hope people will remember you by?

KJ: I hope people will remember that I pushed boundaries, inspired them, worked incredibly hard, set trends, and made history with my business – all at a young age.  I hope to inspire other young women to know that there are no limits and to work hard for what you believe in.
