Note: Each summer, Nebraska Appleseed is fortunate to work with a number of bright, talented law clerks and interns. This is one of a series of posts that feature Appleseed’s clerks and interns discussing their backgrounds and experiences.

Name: Taeuum “Alexis” Yim

Position: Intern

Hometown: Busan, South Korea

About Me: Alexis transferred to the University of Nebraska last year and came to the United States when she was 20. “I like it here, people are really friendly and really kind. I like American food. I’m a senior majoring in marketing. I like to watch movies, my favorite movie is “Titanic.”

Why Appleseed?: “I like to work here because I like the people here. My supervisor tried to help me out with marketing. He tries to find marketing projects for me. It’s also really close to campus, so I don’t need to drive. I hope to gain marketing experience interning here. My supervisor has been really helpful with working on marketing stuff.

Future Plans: “I want go to graduate school to specialize in international marketing. I’ve looked around at a few graduate schools that specialize in it, but I’m ok with going to UNL’s. I want to get a job as a marketer, and eventually go back [to South Korea] after I graduate because I miss my family and friends there, a lot. I want to get a job anywhere. It doesn’t matter if I’m working in America, or I’m working in Canada, or Singapore, or South Korea.”
