Today 21-year-old Kendall Jenner has fans clamoring for her strut down the runway as she walks for the biggest fashion labels during New York Fashion Week. But the pre-show jitters are long gone for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
After all, she predicted her international model stardom when she was just 14.
Last week Kendall appeared on The Tonight Show and sat down with host Jimmy Fallon to read a letter she wrote to herself as a young teenager. And the letter reveals young Kendall’s eerily on target psychic abilities, writing about her hopes to blossom into a super model and travel around the globe – a dream that just seven years later she’s already achieved.

Throwback: Kendall cracked jokes with the audience as she read her seven-year-old letter
Penny for your thoughts? The letter was barely a page long and written in chicken scratch that Kendall revealed she still has and calls ‘full 10-year-old boy handwriting’
The letter, penned September 2, 2010, opens with Kendall addressing herself, with a couple hearts and smiley faces in between.
Upon seeing her childhood chicken scratch she tells the audience, ‘This is by the way still my hand writing, I have a full 10-year-old boy’s handwriting.’
She went onto read: ‘Dear me, I am on my freshman retreat right now and it is really boring. But I met new people so I guess that’s good.
‘I am modeling right now and I love it! I am also on a show called Keeping Up with the Kardashians and we are filming season five,’ she added.
The young star couldn’t help but share her excitement about her newly-launched modeling career that started just a year prior after she signed with Wilhelmina Models in July 2009.

Cinderella moment: Just after her Jimmy Fallon appearance, Kendall went on the the Daily Front Row Fashion Awards where she was honored with the Fashion Icon of the Decade award
‘My goal in life is to become a big time model and travel to really amazing places. I really hope it happens!’ she exclaimed.
‘I’m 14-years-old, just thought I would say that. LOL. Oh and I’m really excited to read this in the future!’ she closed her message.
The live show crowd erupted in applause as Kendall bashfully passed the letter back to host Jimmy, who exclaimed, ‘That’s the best thing I’ve ever read in my entire life!’
‘I’m so proud of you. I feel like I’m in your family too,’ Jimmy sputtered, sharing a sentiment that the millions of reality TV show followers feel having watched Kendall grow up since her show debut at age 10.
In serendipitous timing after Kendall read her teenage prediction on the late night show, she later went on to the 2017 Daily Front Row Fashion Media Awards in downtown Manhattan, where she was honored with the Fashion Icon of the Decade award for her international career.
