Chan Mi Kim, Assistant Council Director
I’m a hybrid: made in South Korea, developed in Vietnam, taught in Malaysia, and now being packaged in the U.S. I study international business and international development at Gordon College. Clifton’s Strengths Finder assessment ranks Activator and Woo as two of my biggest strengths. I love thinking out loud and coming up with innovative ideas to meet needs that are overlooked, and I love the challenge of getting people to like my idea—anything from eco-pencils from recycled newspapers to finding jobs for homeless people. Because my parents are missionaries in the skin of entrepreneurs in a restricted country, I grew up seeing the thick and thin of starting and growing a small business and how it can be used to glorify God and to further His Kingdom. My dream career is to be a competent yet compassionate business consultant to entrepreneurs and small business owners in developing countries.
