Jane Kim steps out, on magazine cover

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

imageSupervisor Jane Kim gets cover treatment in the latest issue of KoreAm, the national magazine pitched to Korean Americans. She sits for a Q&A with San Francisco writer/editor Bernice Yeung and poses for a series of glam photos by Shane Sato. Even the makeup artist, Grace Kim, gets a credit. We’re assuming no relation.

image Add Kim: Yeung notes that the 33-year-old civil rights attorney and former Board of Education president and arts organizer is an “unabashed policy geek who conducts business in designer 4-inch heels and drives to appointments listening to old-school hip-hop.” As for comparisons to her District 6 predecessor, Chris Daly, there’s this: “Though she has a black belt in taekwondo, Kim’s not an aggressive shouter like her predecessor on the board; she’s poised and confident, but when it’s an issue that she cares about, she can be searing and tough.”
