Meet Sooro Kim, Bloomberg Arts Intern

Sooro Kim is an intern for communication at Open House New York and works under the supervision of Rowan Wu, Pamela Puchalski, Kristin LaBuz and Alison Pirie. Outside of work he enjoys exploring New York on foot and taking the subway to various locations!

What excites you about interning at Open House New York?

What excites me most about interning at Open House New York are the connections I’ll make and the skills I will learn. The supervisors are so patient and give us so many opportunities to meet people and explore what the city has to offer.

What’s your favorite neighborhood or place in New York?

My favorite neighborhood in New York would be Times Square in Manhattan. At night the beauty of the city’s lights are truly astonishing and the people you take there with you can elevate the experience into something irreplaceable.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I see myself working with others to build an amazing community of people and friends who share their stories with one another and are comfortable being themselves.

If you could ‘unlock’ any building in New York, what would it be?

I would unlock the rooftop to the Empire State Building as the scenery would be incomparable to anything else and the exhilarating feeling I’d get from being up there would be an experience of a lifetime.
