It appears as if Kim Kardashian always knew she'd be famous.

The reality TV star and business mogul marks her 43rd birthday today (21 October) and, in light of this, a resurfaced video has emerged from her eighth grade graduation.

Kardashian is arguably one of the most famous people on the planet at the moment, and boasts a staggering 364 million followers on Instagram.

The ex-wife of Kanye West also has a net worth of $1.7 billion.

Kardashian was propelled into the spotlight in 2007 when Keeping Up With the Kardashians, based on the Kardashian-Jenner family's crazy antics, was first aired.

The same year, a sex tape from 2003 with Kardashian and former flame Ray J was released - which some have alleged was released by her mum, Kris Jenner, to further boost her fame.

But Jenner later denied this in a lie detector test on The Late Late Show With James Corden, where she was proven to be telling the truth.

When and how Kardashian found worldwide fame aside, it seems as if the SKIMS founder has always known that she was destined for big things.

In a throwback video obtained by Entertainment Tonight, a then-teenage Kardashian bragged that she was going to be famous.

She asks the person behind the camera: "Did everyone get a tape of this?

"I hope you do because you can see me when I'm famous and all of you can remember me as this beautiful little girl."

Elsewhere in the homemade video made in 1994, 13-year-old Kardashian jokes that she's 'dope on a rope' as she urges everyone to learn her vocabulary.

Continuing to joke around with her friends for the camera, Kardashian adds: "I'm more popular than she is!"

As well as going on to become a billionaire, Kardashian has used her fame for good and has helped several inmates be released from prison who were wrongly convicted.

The 43-year-old is training to be a lawyer, and passed the baby bar exam in 2021.

She enjoys working in the legal system so much that the mum-of-four has admitted that she'd give up her TV career to be an attorney.

"I would be just as happy being an attorney full-time," she said at the TIME100 Summit in April.

"The journey just really opened up my eyes so much."

She's been widely praised for her prison reform work, including by famed podcast host Joe Rogan.
