Julie Lim is






Book Club

I was born and raised in California by my two parents who immigrated from South Korea. (My dad’s family were rice farmers and my mom’s family were rice sellers.) I’m a self-starter who doesn’t mind tedious, grueling work if I truly believe in the cause. Most of the work I’ve done started from seeing a problem and wanting to solve it without anyone telling me to. My big goal in life is to end suffering, or at least alleviate some of it. More specifically, I want to build a sustainable future by making institutions socially, environmentally, and fiscally responsible through systemic change. I learned that a lot of problems are caused by poor management, unawareness, and lack of creativity. To avoid making these mistakes, I constantly seek different perspectives, knowledge, and methods. I want to be part of a team that resolve real issues without causing more.

Music i like

I make music with my singer-guitarist friend, Yechan Song. Here’s our most recent one, Wasted Time. 

My favorite song is Hey Mama which is about how much Kanye loves his Mama.
