For this week’s classmate conversation I got to meet Grace Kim. When I went up to her to ask her if she did her classmate conversation already, she said she had already done it with another classmate but was kind enough to take her time to do it again with me. Grace is in her last year and last semester of school. She’s a Chinese studies major and commutes to school all the way from Los Angeles. It takes her about 40 minutes to get to school and back home everyday! That’s such a long drive to be commuting each day, but she said she carpools with her younger sister which makes the drive not as bad. Grace’s hobbies include playing the guitar, playing the bass, and a little bit of piano. She’s into music and also art, such as calligraphy and painting. She enjoys doing these things with her sister, like a way for them to bond over their hobbies together. Playing instruments and painting is a way that she uses to relieve stress.
