Since she was a child, Kim knew she wanted to help marginalized populations. Her career in immigration law started when she represented a family as a student attorney for the Immigrant Rights Clinic at the University of Baltimore School of Law. Advocating for her clients’ asylum claim solidified Kim’s desire to work with immigrants. Her commitment to immigrants strengthened during her internship at the Tahirih Justice Center in Baltimore, where she provided legal support to survivors fleeing gender-based violence. Kim will continue to work with Tahirih as an IJC fellow, representing unaccompanied minors who are also survivors of gender-based violence.
