She is an accomplished dancer and actress, third-degree black belt in the Korean martial art called Hapkido, defender of the environment and a self-described “foodie,” and San Marino High School senior Heein Kim hopes to add one more prestigious title to her dossier next Monday morning.

How does “member of the Tournament of Roses Royal Court” sound?
Only time will tell.
Heein was one of just 25 finalists who emerged this week from a field of 617 applicants hoping to be named on Monday, September 30 to the seven-person Royal Court.
“I feel so very honored to be a finalist for the Tournament of Roses Royal Court,” Heein told The Tribune. “I never would have expected to make it this far. I have received so much support from my friends, family, and peers and I am extremely grateful to know that the people and community I love are rooting for me.”
Heein, who was recently featured in a Tribune article titled “You Don’t Mess Around With Kim” that highlighted her many skills and interests, is the daughter of father Han Kim, mother Stevie Kim, and older sister to Duin, 15, and Suin, who is ten.
