E-Board Profiles

Gina Kim ’22, Co-President

Psychology Major, Premed

Hi AASA! I’m one of your 2020-2021 co-presidents, Gina Kim. I’m a FLi Korean-American student and current sophomore concentrating in psychology (and on the premed track) from the north Chicago suburbs. Some APIDA-related topics I’m passionate about are intersectional LGBTQ+ representation in the Asian community, historical redress of the “comfort women” issue, and the nuances of Asian media representation. I’m also on the executive board of Princeton for North Korean Human Rights and serve as a SHARE Peer.If you have any questions about AASA or just want to talk, feel free to email me at gckim@princeton.edu.

My name is Henry Slater and I am one of AASA’s co-presidents. A rising junior, I have just declared sociology as my major and am particularly interested in civic engagement among the APIDA community, both on and off campus. As a Japanese-born and raised Tibetan American, I know that there are many different ways to be part of the community and am very committed to making sure all types of voices are heard. hslater@princeton.edu
