Tweet to Current FIDM Digital Media Student & Social Ambassador Brianna Kim


FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising has launched a new Social Media Ambassador program through which current students are sharing their first-hand FIDM experience on Twitter. Originally from Orange County, California, FIDM Digital Media Student Brianna Kim (@FIDM_Bri)  shared an interview on the FIDM Blog about her interest in Korean pop culture, southern California fast food staple In-N-Out Burger, and her career goals.

Q&A with Brianna:

Hometown: “Orange County, California.”

Describe your style: “I have a pretty conservative, but still really classy style.”

Currently listening to: “I listen to mostly Korean music and a lot of the Korean artists from the ‘90s are coming back, so currently I am listening to an R&B duo called Fly to the Sky.”

Favorite brands: “I am not really big on brands for clothing, but I really love Michael Kors handbags.”

An icon who inspires you: “Jeremy Lin, not only because he is pro athlete, but because he is bold about showing his faith and religion.”

Favorite place to eat in DTLA: “I don’t have an all-time favorite place to eat, but how can you go wrong with In-N-Out in SoCal? I also love this build your own pizza place called Blaze Pizza.”

Dream job: “I feel like I am still learning about what career paths there are in digital media. But one dream job that I have is to go work in Korea in the entertainment industry and work on k-pop music videos or the Korean TV shows.”

Best advice for FIDM Students: “Passion, attitude, and talent. This was actually something my Department Chair, Gene LeBrock, once said to our class. ‘When you are passionate, it really shows through your work and people will see that.’”

LA’s best kept secret: “Laguna Beach. Newport Beach. Dana Point Harbor (and maybe even In-N-Out?)”

Your FIDM experience in three words: “Fun, challenging and growth.”

You know you went to FIDM when…: “you choose to take the stairs instead of the elevators.”

More about Brianna:

“My name is Brianna Kim, and I am currently a Digital Media student at FIDM. I recently just finished my first year. Just a few random facts about me… I am an only child and I was born and raised in the OC. I love to sing and I love music, especially Korean music. My all-time favorite TV show is One Tree Hill. For me personally, I place great importance on my Christian faith and my family. At first, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do after high school, but I started taking some graphic design classes and started making videos for my church and I really enjoyed it. So I decided to apply to FIDM and do what I loved. And I am so glad that I decided to attend FIDM because I genuinely enjoy what I am doing and having so much fun learning. Every day at FIDM, I am learning something new and exciting and every day I am learning more about myself and how I can grow as a person to be successful in life overall. I truly enjoy meeting new people and talking/interacting with people and building relationships. Many people believe that I am a conservative person, but one of my goals at FIDM is to really become more adventurous when it comes to projects and experiences. I really want to expand myself and see what I can do. I want to be able to take more risks and really try new things that I have never even thought of. One thing that I have learned here at FIDM is that passion makes a huge difference. When you are passionate about what you do, everything else will fall into place. When you are passionate, you are inspired. When you are passionate, it means you love what you do.”
