Professor Kim is one of the many professors, educators who have encouraged and inspired me along my journey. I am truly humbled by her greatness, she is someone who is so kind, genuine, pure, and out of this world intelligent. I was recently digging through some old folders and found my journal here is a note she wrote to me in 2006, still to this day her words resonates with me. Being encouraged by someone whom you admire is a gift, thank you professor Kim for believing in me!!
