Paris Jackson Opens Up About Finally Embracing Fame at PEOPLE’s Ones to Watch Party https://t.co/wHuS8Eq3G8— People (@people) October 5, 2017
Michael Jackson's daughter spoke at People's One's to Watch Party about her decision to become a model and actress.
Paris said she initially had other plans for her life:
“I originally wanted to just kind of stay out of the spotlight and become a psychologist or a nurse at a psychiatric ward,”
But she made the decision to enter public life right before her high school graduation:
“I realized it would be a shame to waste the platform I was given,” she says. “Having the ability to go into the acting and fashion world, I just figured why not use that to make my platform bigger. That way, instead of helping the world one by one with patients, I could help the masses.”
She's currently the face of Calvin Klein and is set to make her big-screen debut alongside Amanda Seyfried next year.
