My name is Bomi Kim. I am a visual artist and UX/UI designer. As a designer and a maker, I use empathy, and curiosity to create simple and effective solution to complex problems. I am passionate about giving back to my community. In my free time, I answer calls for Anti-Violence Project’s 24-hour crisis hotline. I am a peer counselor at Identity House, making referrals to therapist, support groups, and other mental health resources to clients at the Walk-In Center.
“When I wasn’t racked with insecurity, I was wildly arrogant. All three of us were. We had the confidence of white men, which was swiftly cut down after graduation, upon our separation, when each of us had to prove ourselves again and again, because we were, at every stage of our careers, underestimated. But I wouldn’t have had it any other way. That struggle kept me faithful to the creative imagination cultivated by our friendship, which was an imagination chiseled by rigor and depth to reflect the integrity of our discontented consciousness. No one else cared. No one else took us seriously. We were the only ones who demanded we be artists first.”— Cathy Park Hong, Minor Feelings
