Kim Wu was born in 1988 in Queens, New York City, where she grew up. Multiple generations of her Taiwanese family lived together under one roof – and in their neighborhood they were one of just a few Asian-American families. Kim met Baha'is in college, where she became a Baha'i, and today she works as an educator, trainer and facilitator for community programs. Today she lives in Los Angeles, where she works at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, managing a national training project for school communities.
