Kim Kardashian fans recently got a glimpse of the reality TV star before she was famous after an older video surfaced online.
Even in her teen years the new mom, 32, had a solid appreciation for the cameras and in viral video she was seen boasting about her popularity and showing off dance moves while being filmed after her 8th grade graduation, according to Entertainment Online.
"My name is Kim Kardashian, I'm the dopest on the ropest person in this class," a confident Kardashian told the camera.
The reality TV star appears comfortable and relaxed before the camera as she clutches a microphone while enjoying the lime light.
"I'm more popular than Lisa!" she blurted out while competing for camera time with the young girl next to her.
While she was not yet a household name at the time the video was made, Kardashian appeared to almost predict her future as she expresses her desire to become famous.
"I hope that you can see me when I'm older and I'm famous and you remember me [as being] this beautiful little girl," she told the camera.
Also featured in the 3:23 minutes into the video are Kardashian's siblings and parents, who are present at the graduation event. Older sister Kourtney bears a striking resemblance to the reality TV star and younger sister Khloe appears to be more innocent as she flashes her braces for the camera.
Kardashian, along with Kourtney and mother Kris Jenner, are seen busting moves on the dance floor while letting loose among other guests.
"We're gonna dance down!" Kardashian proclaimed while dancing.
The E! star first rose to stardom in 2007 following the release of her and singer Ray J's racy adult tape. Since then the Kardashian family has built a multi-million dollar empire which consists of reality TV shows; clothing lines; cosmetics lines; perfume lines and more.
On June 15 Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl, which is her and rapper Kanye West's first child.
