Shouldn’t you be watching the Kardashians?” Kim remained passionate about politics. As a result she is now on her way to work for the Cravath, Swaine & Moore law firm in New York City as a paralegal, with a plan to attend law school.

Kim’s powerful and respectful voice stems from her mother’s wisdom that “there is no reason ever, for your opinions, ideas and arguments to be hushed.” Kim’s passion is evident and electric. Although her interest in politics has led to some challenging moments, she overcame any sense of self doubt continued exploring political issues, developing her opinion and sharing her voice.

Kim Grinhaus, you’re Fit to Lead!
