Carrie Kim

Hey there! My name is Carrie and I am a rising junior at Cornell studying English literature. Moving to rural Massachusetts for high school after spending the majority of my life in Seoul really changed my view of nature from that of a static placeholder to a growing and changing force of life. Shortly thereafter, my interest in sustainability grew as I became more informed of the fundamental intersections between social and environmental justice. In my free time, I love practicing yoga, reading strange novels, thrifting, and dancing in my room.

I love to go on spontaneous trips and one of my dreams is to eat my way across the world while meeting different and interesting people along the way. In my everyday life, I enjoy playing volleyball, hanging out with friends, and thrifting.
