Interview with Jeehye Kim, Economics major Class of 2018
What is your favorite book?
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger. It touched me very deeply because I read it towards the end of my high school senior year, when the coming of age narrative lined up with what was going on in my life.
What is your most memorable travel experience?
When I went on a cruise to the Caribbean with my family last year. I went horseback riding on the beach in Playa del Carmen in Mexico and went swimming into the ocean with stingrays!
What class you took this semester would you recommend to your friends?
My favorite class this semester was Professor Hong’s seminar class on ‘History and Fiction’. We read fascinating books in class, and I had the opportunity to listen to how others interpreted the text, which is a privilege you can’t have when you’re reading by yourself.
