Father’s Day Video: Joseb Gim

“When we, immigrants, came to America, we really lived like foreigners. America was not our country” – Jacob Gim (Joseb’s father).

Joseb Gim is the Assistant District Attorney at Richmond County District Attorney’s Office in Staten Island.

We knew he had some special stories to share when he stopped by our booth at the Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Festival, where we were recording stories of mothers, and declared that he wanted to talk about his father.  Joe explains his unusual name as well sharing some compelling and often funny stories of his father.

We hope you enjoy the video.  Happy Father’s Day!
