"I think a lot of people don't respect her as someone who is co-running a multi-billion dollar company," a student named Liz, who did not want to give her last name, told NBC10 Boston.
Kardashian co-founded Skims, a multi-billion dollar shapewear company. Last year she also launched Skyy Parnters, a Boston-based private equity firm.

Liz said she found the remarks interesting and that she learned a lot.
"Just to learn from someone who has built such a successful business was really exciting and I think having the privacy of no cameras in the room, being able to have that candid conversation was special too," Liz said.
It was a busy day for Kardashian, who posted a video of a 6 a.m. workout on Instagram. She also shared a photo of the newly unveiled "The Embrace" statue on the Boston Common, which honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King, to her Instagram story.
