“Everything else that I can invest my life in, like grades, money, or success, don’t last. I think that it’s people and relationships that last and have meaning in life, so my philosophy is to focus on those things and other people, rather than things that I want.
In the future, I want to be someone who encourages the people around me. I want to be there for people when they need me. I don’t have big dreams or anything, I just want to positively impact the people in my life,” sophomore Pauline Kim said.
