Josephine Kim

I am a recently graduated Master's student from Rutgers University, NJ in the School of Social Work. My interests have centered around the study of trauma and trauma-focused therapeutic modalities and therefore, my passion is to be a mental health counselor. Currently, I work as an administrative assistant for an Online Professional Training Program at Rutgers University. But if I were to choose one job for the rest of my life, it would be to pursue all the knowledge in life, especially the wisdom that is located in the bible. Though I am not wise by any means, I find a lot of joy with listening and understanding people, how they perceive their world and themselves, and this became part of my drive to join Vision Camp 2021.
