She continued, “It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”
Kim began her four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last year, around the time she helped release Alice Marie Johnson from prison.
The 63-year-old had been in prison on a non-violent drug charge since 1996 and Kim visited president Donald Trump in the White House to argue her case.
The president granted Alice clemency.
In the same Vogue interview, Kim discussed how she doesn't pay attention to the negative connotations that come with her name anymore.
“I don’t pay attention to that anymore. I love to be put in a situation where I can have a conversation with someone who might not be inclined to think much of me, because I can guarantee they will have a different opinion and understand what’s important to me after they’ve met me.”
