Yoojin Kim, Staff Writer

Freshman, Undeclared

Hi! My name is Yoojin Kim and I am a freshman at UAC. I got started with photography when I was in highschool, by joining my school’s A/V club. I got to use a DSLR camera for the first time in my life, and I fell in love with it. I took pictures of people, animals and scenery around the campus which were used for my school’s social media posts. I like photography because it is such an effective, impactful means of communication regardless of language barrier and digital illiteracy. On top of that, it is simply fun. It allows me to look at ordinary scenes with creativity, and express it through lenses. I’m mainly interested in conservation photography and capturing biophilic photos!
