Kim Kardashian Calls This Star a ‘Great Role Model for Children’ in Time 100 Profile.
The 39-year-old reality star penned a touching tribute to the 17-year-old star, who has been named as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020.
Jojo is also the youngest person on the list this year.
“JoJo Siwa is a ray of sunshine in a world that seems scary right now,” Kim wrote. “As a parent, you want your kids to admire positive figures.
There’s no one more positive than JoJo. You just can’t help but smile when you see her rainbow ponytail.”
“She’s a great role model for children, and her optimism is more necessary now than ever.
It’s no wonder my 7-year-old daughter North and millions of other children around the world adore her,” Kim continued.
“When North met JoJo last year to fulfill her dream of being part of her YouTube channel, North got really shy. But JoJo, like a big sister, made her feel at home as they dressed up, danced and made slime.”
Last year, Kim let JoJo “babysit” daughter North, 7, in a super cute YouTube video.
“JoJo is never ashamed to be herself, which can be really hard to do in this industry, especially when you’re so young,” Kim continued. “When Keeping Up With the Kardashians first aired, I was old enough to know who I was and make my own decisions. I can’t imagine what it’s like to live this life at age 17. JoJo embraces it, and I hope she always will.”
Kim concluded: “At some point, she’ll evolve and grow up a little bit, and that’s O.K. The people who love and support her will always be there. Live in the moment. Have fun.
Be yourself and surround yourself with people who will keep you positive.”
