ANIMATION INTERN: Heather Kim
Heather is currently enrolled as an undergraduate at Cal State L.A. and is aiming to get her Bachelor Degree in Animation. She and her family have been living in Los Angeles for almost all her childhood. She is more of an indoor girl, who enjoys being on the computer, sketching, and playing video games. She is a quiet girl but once you get to know her, she can get a little louder. She likes to see the glass half-full, so to speak; try to be optimistic and kind to others. She has a bit of OCD in that she likes to take her time to present he work well instead of just skimming through just to get it over with. She likes to dedicate all her effort in her job and “rocket” off from there; like once she gets started on a job, she can work on it for hours straight rather than take breaks in between.
