Kobe Bryant's Daughter Natalia Gets A New Job

As the world continues to remember the legacy of Kobe Bryant and the impact the athlete made not only on the NBA but on the entire sports world, his family is focused on continuing the legacy the late basketball player left in his daughters Natalia, Bianka, and Capri.

The eldest of the girls, Natalia, is looking towards her future. The daughter of the late athlete was the first to turn 18 and is weighing her options for college. Her mother, Vanessa Bryant, took to Instagram to share her daughter's options, first posting Natalia in a New York University sweatshirt. "So cute. NYU is one of her top schools," said the Queen Mamba. "I will do my best to keep her in Cali just like I kept her daddy here," adding the hashtag "#CaliGirlForever." Vanessa followed up the announcement with a photo of her eldest daughter wearing a University of Southern California sweatshirt.

Although it isn't fully clear what Natalia will be studying in college, you could guess that sports might be a part of her college experience — she previously played volleyball in high school. However, the eldest daughter has a new job that might just keep her in Southern California.

Natalia Bryant is starting a career

While some may have expected Natalia Bryant to follow in her late father's footsteps by joining the sports world, it seems the eldest Bryant daughter has other plans.

Natalia announced on Instagram she is now signed with IMG models and beginning a career in fashion. "I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age," she said in a statement provided by IMG. "I have a love for the industry and ever since I can remember I wanted to model. There is a lot to learn but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively."

The 18-year-old Bryant daughter shared her own excitement about the new venture on her Instagram stories. "I am beyond thrilled and so honored to be a part of the IMG family!" Natalia wrote (via People).

Vanessa Bryant of course chimed in, reposting the exciting news to her own Instagram story and writing "I am so proud of you." Even if Natalia doesn't choose to stay in California for college, she clearly has her family's support.
