Irene Kim (she/her)

Irene is a sophomore at Haverford College and a prospective major in Political Science and minor in Neuroscience and Asian American Studies. Dedicated to fostering safe spaces and advancing equity and inclusion, Irene serves as Co-Head of the Pan-Asian Resource Center (PARC), the Affinity Group Coalition, Officer of Multiculturalism in Student Council, and a Lead Associate in the Race and Ethnicity Education Office. At her time at Haverford, through initiatives such as the CHAS Conference, she hopes to amplify the voices of BIPOC students and make meaningful changes to her community. 

Prior to Haverford, Irene moved back and forth between the U.S. and South Korea — but she considers home to be Cheonan, Korea and Massachusetts. Her experiences traversing cultures and languages have shaped her interest in multiculturalism and multilingualism, driving her commitment to creating inclusive and welcoming environments for individuals of all backgrounds. With passions spanning education, policy, law, and neuroscience, Irene aspires to continue her advocacy through policy and legal avenues in the future.
