Kim knows that being a part of a team is essential to her student life. At UMBC, a supportive student community is important, from athletic teams to interest groups to living communities. Kim’s team is the UMBC Women’s Basketball team, a group that not only heats up the basketball court but also serves lunches to the homeless, reads to middle-schoolers and performs other service projects around the community. She is also an Interdisciplinary Studies major, aiming for a career in international security. A bigger team, the United Nations, is Kim’s ultimate career goal.
