Aloha, my name is Ariana Kim and I am a junior at the University of Southern California. I am studying Communication & Technology with an emphasis in Business Entrepreneurship. At USC I am the Vice-President of the Korean American Student Association, a delegate in Model United Nations, and a scholar for the Levan Institute for Humanities & Ethics. I am also the co-founder of a technology non-profit helping refugees in Greece, a Strategy and Marketing Intern for the start-up DOAP Kitchens in LA, and an Admissions Ambassador at USC.
I have studied abroad in Rome, Italy and Havana, Cuba. A culmination of these experiences and opportunities I’ve had has sparked a curiosity and passion to travel and understand the world from different cultural perspectives, an invaluable mindset that has helped me today to work as an intern at PacRim Marketing.
I was an Integrated Marketing Intern in the Summer of 2018 with PacRim Marketing Group. During my time at PacRim, I was able to greatly develop my writing, design, and analytical skills. I was able to work with clients ranging from restaurants to shopping centers to hotels. I particularly enjoyed creating visual pieces for clients as well as writing press releases. It was fantastic working in such a diverse, collaborative, and interdisciplinary environment. Working at PacRim has been such a fantastic experience and I am now more curious and confident to explore the opportunities of the business and marketing world.
