To My People
Born in New Jersey, Deborah Kim grew up in Staten Island but frequently visited Korea since she was a child—forming a multicultural identity that made her feel like an outsider in both societies. At a young age, she began experimenting with spoken word poetry after discovering Def Poetry Jam on YouTube. Now currently training to become a professional dancer, Deborah will be moving to Korea in 2016 to teach English while studying ballet and breaking but hopes to continue using spoken word and dance as a way to tell stories that reflect on relationships, social boundaries, and identity.
