Arts and essay contest

Reflecting on her life, Kim said she realized her two-fold upbringing was actually a tremendous gift. Eager to share a piece of her identity with others, Kim entered the First Amendment Freedoms Art and Essay Contest for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and wrote about the power of the first amendment.


The contest is officially launched every November and is open to all eligible children of U.S. active duty or retired service members. Winners of both the art and essay contests have their winning entries displayed at 34 Armed Services YMCA branch and affiliate locations, as well as military bases worldwide during Military Family Month each November.
