Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be two of the biggest stars right now, but daughter North West won’t get everything handed to her. In a new interview, Kardashian says the 1-year-old will one day have to “work for what she wants.”

The reality star opens up to the London Evening Standard magazine about how she used to work while in school in order to buy luxury purchases. “I saved up for this Dolce & Gabbana dress I really wanted, or like in high school these Prada shoes that my parents wouldn’t buy me,” she recalls. “And I remember they were $400, and I had to save for the entire year to get them .. We didn’t get anything [from my parents], we had to get a job if we wanted it. So I was working in a clothing store and I would save and save.”

Kardashian admits to wondering to her friends what North’s “first job will be.” She tells the outlet, “And they were like, ‘What? She’s gonna have a job?’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is’. She will have to work for what she wants.” The mom says of North, who has already modeled high-end clothes, “She loves fashion. Maybe she’ll be a designer. Who knows? It’s too early to tell.”

Of course, North has an interest in music, too, thanks to her dad. Kardashian reveals, “The best is when Kanye’s recording in the home and we’re in Mexico or whatever. And the music will be upstairs and she’ll hear it, and it’s really loud and you’d think it would disturb her, but I just kind of rock her to it, and she’ll just pass out.”

Kardashian’s full interview will be released on Thursday and Friday.
