Kim was born on South Beach and grew up in Coconut Grove/Miami.  She spent many summers in Switzerland, where her mom was born, speaking French, her first language, and developing a love for all things literary.  (Her mom spoke five languages, her grandmother, seven.) At the same time, growing up in the multicultural, multilingual melting pot of  Miami exposed her to a multitude of Latinx and global cultures and languages which influence her work and life.
