Kim was the first Korean-American woman to receive the recognition at the UGA History Department. During the Master’s program, she interviewed victims of sexual violence survivors. The collection of oral history interviews were later incorporated into her thesis, “Healing: A Bridge with a View – Sexual Violence and Trauma Survivors’ Stories from Oral History Interviews” and “Embodying the Arts” exhibit in 2019. She was a semifinalist at the GSAS Syn-Thesis Competition and presented the project at the Oral History Association’s 2020 Annual Conference. From writing research papers to listening to people’s stories, Kim enjoys discovering, highlighting, and preserving forgotten narratives.
