Freshman Spotlight: Kimberly Lee

 

Kimberly Lee

Hometown: Summit, NJ

Major: Communication and Leadership

What are three things on your freshman year bucket list?

Three things on my freshman year bucket list…I’d have to say one is definitely to explore the music scene in austin. I haven’t really had a chance to do that because I don’t have a car here. So that kind of sucks. Another thing is definitely to explore more food. I haven’t been able to do that much either. I have explored a couple of food options, but my friend sent me this huge list of place around austin so I’m really excited to check that out. The last thing I guess is just to meet a ton of new people which I have already which is really awesome. But as the second semester starts, I really want to talking to people from really diverse majors from my own.

What is your favorite class in college so far?

It has to be intro to communications and leadership taught by Dr. JB. It talks about different kinds of leaders and what qualities make a leader, and it was extremely interesting because you never really think about that. Especially in the weirdest situations like the bombing in Japan.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

By far the best piece of advice I’ve been given is to fake it ’til you make it just because nobody really knows what they are doing in life, and that is a universal truth that nobody really talks about. SO if you just fake it, eventually you will believe what you do.

If you could be famous what would you want to be famous for?

If I was famous for anything, I think I would really want it to be for something through social justice efforts. But I think specifically with children. I have a special place in my heart for helpless children and orphans in third world countries, so I would really love if I was famous for some kind of effort for that. 

What is your favorite thing about speech?

I think my favorite thing about speech is being able to listen to voice that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to be exposed to. Speech is such a diverse community in a variety of spectrums that you can hear six incredibly different stories in one hour which is absolutely crazy.
