Private: Michelle Kim Former Vice President
1607 Massachusetts Ave
Cambridge, MA 02138
Michelle Kim is a graduate of Harvard Law School and as a 3L served as Vice President of Harvard Animal Law Society. She hails from South Korea and grew up raising 20 chicks, 10 hamsters, 5 quails, 3 rabbits, 6 turtles, 4 lobsters, and a dog in her tiny apartment in Seoul, much to her mother’s chagrin. At some point in her career, she intends to work in food tech and animal testing alternatives tech. As a member of Harvard Law School Effective Altruism, she also intends to donate much of her income to effective animal charities.
Before law school, Michelle received the Yale Parker Huang Fellowship and worked as a teacher at Keumkang North Korean Refugee School in Seoul, Korea. She graduated from Yale University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. In life, she hopes to be a lawyer by day and writer by night and also run a restaurant in San Francisco on the side. But Chekhov tried to do that and died at 44 (and was transported to Moscow in a refrigerated railway car meant for oysters), so she is not so sure.
