Model Kendall Jenner is among an Olympic soccer player, a doctor, and a writer in her latest venture as a WSJ Magazine columnist. In the February issue, the luminaries comment on youth from different angles—some provide for it, others teach college courses on it, and Kendall just is it. She reflects on the topic, "I just turned 19 a couple weeks ago, and I'm scared to be 20—it's the first step out of being a teenager." Since she admits to growing up faster than any other human in the world, she forces herself to act younger: "I try to be as immature as I can sometimes—react to things as if I were 12." If you ever feel like you are growing up too fast, just act twelve and report back.
