Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My name is Kim, I am 23 years old. I was born and raised in South Central LA, moved to the valley at 8 years old and moved to East LA at 15. At the age of 16 we moved out of state and I currently live in the desert in what feels like the middle of nowhere. I graduated in 2016 and I am awaiting to start school again hopefully this upcoming spring semester, I went right after I graduated high school and I feel like it was a bad idea because although I passed my first semester, the second semester just drained me entirely. I am in a relationship with my baby daddy. I got pregnant 6 months into the relationship and although it wasn’t planned I feel so blessed to have her. I work three days a week at a doctors office right now and I wish I had a talent or was tik tok famous so I can support my family lol

What Inspires You Every day? : At this point it’s my daughter. I feel like I’m going through a lot in my head right now and she is currently my reason to be. I look at her and she makes me cry tears of happiness. I’m so blessed to have her, she came into my life unexpectedly and I’m so glad I went through with the pregnancy. Although it was hard and not the greatest time of my life, she was 100% worth it. Her laugh, her smile, just her entire being keeps me going. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for her, she is the light of my life no doubt.

What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Umm honestly none I’m just living day by day learning to be better for my little one.

What is your ultimate goal in life? : To be happy. Like genuinely happy and stress free. To give my baby a better life than I had. Which to be clear I didn’t have a horrible life growing up but it was a struggle at times.

How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : Honestly I loved the shut down. I was about 6 months pregnant in March and I was just getting over the pregnancy sickness by that time so it was great. I got to play animal crossing every day, spent time with my boyfriend because we lived together at his parents at the time. We went to the lake a few times, luckily they were mostly empty lol. But it was also hard. I lost my grandpa from my moms side on cinco de mayo. I met him once but we talked on the phone and FaceTimed sometimes when I lived with my mom. He passed away a day after my baby shower which was sad and hard. I felt so sad for my mom and my grandma. And I lost my grandpa from my dads side on Christmas Day. That one hit me a lot harder because we grew up with him. I miss him everyday and I still cry thinking about him. I feel like his death really took a toll on my mental health, I’ve never lost anyone close to me before and it was hard.

What is a message you would like to give others? : Don’t take time with anyone for granted cause you’ll never know when the last time you’ll see them or speak to them will be.

What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I just feel like I’m a really nice person and I have a lot of potential to do whatever I want and be who I want to be but I have so much on my mind that it’s hard to do anything. I know I’m a good mom and I try to be a good girlfriend. I love my family and i wish I could erase all of their struggles for them. Im not a saint but I definitely am a good person. Im trying to learn to love life as much as I can and I know overtime things will get better for me and I will succeed in whatever I set my mind to. I hope to be someone my daughter looks up to as she grows up and I can’t wait to see what my future holds in store for me.
