After a few years travelling as a model, Kim is now combining her work career with a Business Science degree, majoring in Finance. Her side-kick career is refashioning old discarded clothes and fabric, which she hopes to combine with the business skills she develops during her studies, to find new paths for sustainable fashion.
Kim travelled extensively after completing her schooling – modelling took her to Japan, the UK, Spain and Italy, amongst others, each providing a learning experience she values hugely, reading her way through heaps of books to deal with the long travel hours and weeks away from home. Next up she hopes to spend time in France, finally putting use to the years of French language studies.
Feminism and gender-based violence are causes she feels most passionate about, and is grateful for the fact that the model industry is one where women are valued in the workplace.
