Ethan Kim 2020 Recipient

Ethan Kim

Throughout my life, I have taken an unorthodox approach to whatever I do. At my core, I am an individual who loves to perform and be in front of others. I channeled this interest and honed my craft to make a difference in high school.

I am incredibly grateful to have the Bridge Foundation embrace my uniqueness and believe in me and what I will be able to contribute to society in the years to come It encourages me to keep breaking molds and stereotypes and work for positive change in the world as I attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and beyond.
