Megan Kim, CCHS Class of 2017, founded Spark, a literary journal, in 2015. At Wheaton College in Illinois, she has continued to pursue a passion for storytelling. An English Writing and Philosophy Integrated with Urban Studies double major, she hopes to learn how to better tie together that love and her desire to see reconciliation in matters of racial and other social injustices through a Fall 2019 semester at Wheaton’s Urban Studies program in Chicago’s South Side.
Megan has had an incredibly saturated two years of college. This spring, her poem won 2nd place in the Lowell-Grabill Creative Writing Contest, and she’s been published twice in Kodon, the campus literary journal. She also serves as an editor for The Pub, Wheaton’s independent academic journal, leads a Discipleship Group, is a TA for philosophy professor Dr. Ryan Kemp, was recently inducted into Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society, helped market a student-run conference on Women in the Church, Academia, and the World, and is an active member of All Souls Anglican Church.
She is deeply grateful to be so nurtured in her faith and academics by her community, and intends to stay in Chicago post-grad, working.
