AC: Do you have a captain on your team?
Kendall: There’s one girl on our squad who’s kind of like the captain, but we don’t have a set captain because we’re still so new.
AC: Do you contribute a lot of ideas to the team?
Kendall: There are so many creative girls on my squad and we all like to think of stuff like that. I love putting ideas out there and if we end up using them, that’s really cool.
AC: How does it feel to be part of the first-ever cheer squad at your school?
Kendall: It’s pretty amazing. It’s great to have cheerleading at my school. Especially if my future children decide to go to Sierra [Canyon], then they’ll be able to look back and see that their mom was on the first cheer squad there.
AC: Are you more of a football or basketball fan?
Kendall: Basketball. I mean, I love football, but basketball is a little crazier for me. But we did have such a great football team this year and it was fun to go to every game and watch them go through the season.
AC: What would you like people to know about you that’s not covered on the show?
Kendall: I guess when you first meet me, I’m a little shy. Once I get to know you, though, I’ll open up. But I always try to be as nice to other people as possible.
AC: Does your shyness go away in front of the camera?
Kendall: Almost. I’ve gotten so much better at it—you could ask any of my sisters. I was a really shy kid, but I’ve grown out of it for the most part now.
AC: How do you ensure that you still get to be a regular teenager?
Kendall: Basically, my friends keep me grounded. I’ve known them forever, so it’s not like they judge me or look at me differently than any other friend. I’ve known them since I was in kindergarten, so it’s nice to have them around.
AC: What do you like most about modeling?
Kendall: I love meeting so many people! There’s always a crew around shoots and I love meeting them all and being in front of the camera. Wearing all the fun clothes and getting my makeup and hair done—everything’s just so much fun for me! I really hope to continue doing it because I love it. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do.
AC: You and Kylie remake music videos and post them on the web. What gave you the idea to do that?
Kendall: The girls we actually do the videos with are our best friends—we’ve known them forever. We used to do these videos together when we were like, 8 or 9 years old, and they were to the funniest old-school songs. We always had fun doing them, so we just started doing it again…
AC: As a former Olympic athlete, has your dad [Bruce Jenner] given you any tips on what it takes to be a top athlete?
Kendall: He always says to do everything to the best of my ability and to work hard at anything I do.
AC: What big things can we expect from you in the future?
Kendall: Hopefully just continuing with my modeling career and maybe getting into TV like my sisters.
AC: Is acting an interest of yours?
Kendall: It’s not my dream, but it would be really fun to do someday.
AC: What do you hope the cameras never catch you doing?
Kendall: Probably changing or something.
AC: What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten?
Kendall: Don’t pay attention to what people say about you. If they say something mean about you, they’re probably just jealous.
AC: Is there anything you want to say to our readers?
Kendall: Follow your dreams!
