Enne Kim is a student in the College of Arts and Sciences. She is pursuing a double major in English and Intellectual History, as well as a minor in International Relations. Her primary interests lie in the intersection between arts and law—specifically, the usage of mediums like literature and visual art as an expression of human rights. She has worked with research in criminal justice reform and sociolinguistics, which have shaped her desire to continue working in human rights law as a career. As a Korean-American from Georgia, she’s also passionate about immigration rights and was involved in the southern anti-AAPI hate movement.
She’s also heavily involved in literature. Over the summer, Enne will be interning with a journalism company while exploring creative writing in different countries and languages. She is a staff writer for 34th Street and is also involved with several literary journals across campus, including Penn Review, PULJ, and PPR. In high school, she also founded her own literary journal, which focused on bringing higher level literacy engagement to underserved youth. Community engagement is extremely important to her, which is why she is interested in bringing social poetics and education to the Philadelphia community.
As somebody who also advocates for human rights, she will also be researching human rights crises over the summer, including the land emergency in Zambia. Through the intersection between law and literature, she hopes to bring a unique perspective to SNF Paideia and contribute more ideas and initiatives.
