Kim started coding in 2011, after a battle with a Thai waterfall left her with a broken leg and a lot of free time. On a whim, she picked up a book on HTML and CSS, started learning, and has yet to turn back. She's now a software engineering graduate student, a freelance web designer, an enthusiastic TA for GDI's classes, and a chapter leader. But mostly, she's still learning. Kim is passionate about building an open, friendly environment where women can discover that same excitement she felt on creating her first website.
