Mom Kimora Lee, Baby Phat founder, wants Aoki Lee to keep going the way she has regarding her passion. She also has big aspirations for her daughter.

“I want Aoki Lee to keep the energy and passion she’s shown her entire life. It’s nice to have a Harvard grad in the family, but it might be nice to have an attorney, too,” she told PEOPLE.

“I’ve promised myself I’ll wait at least a week before gently nudging her in that direction, though.”

Aoki Lee Simmons Shared A Lot Of Her College Experience On Social Media


The model and Harvard grad have shared many of her college experiences on social media. She recently opened up about her struggle with ADHD and an autoimmune disorder and shared tips for her followers on things that have helped her along the way.

“People do tell me I am decently accomplished for my age. But I do not have the personality of an accomplished person; I’m a huge procrastinator, I have ADHD, I consider myself rather lazy, I get bored easily,” she said in a TikTok video. “However, I got into Harvard at 16, I’m graduating early, and I have two full time jobs.”

She told her followers she’d found a few ways to help her get things done.

“The simplest tip I have is I pick the one thing I want to do the least and the reward I want the most out of the day,” she explained.

“Usually, it’s like the science or the math things that I have, like a coding assignment, and I also was looking forward to, like, Starbucks or something, and I want something kind of dumb. I want two Starbucks drinks, and I only need one and can’t decide.”
