Earlier this month, Harker junior Angela Kim received the Best in Class award in the grades 9-12 video category in this year’s Growing Up Asian in America Awards. Kim earned the award for her short film, “Mother’s Love,” and was honored at a special ceremony held at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum. She and other winners were later featured on an NBC Bay Area segment about the contest. Each year, the Asian Pacific Fund holds the Growing Up Asian in America Awards to feature the creative work of young Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent. Nearly 1,000 students from around the Bay Area participate every year, submitting artwork, poetry, prose and video projects.
As if that wasn’t enough to get excited about, Kim also will participate in the eight-week Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program, starting in June.
