The 65th District Assemblywoman, Young Kim made the audience think twice of immigrant's who make big in America and how they achieve their dreams. She was an immigrant child from South Korea and made through her journey to be the 65th District Assemblywoman. Her message was to keep that perseverance until you achieve your dream.
