The Daily Illini

JJ Kim
Hi! My name is JJ Kim and I’m a sophomore majoring in journalism. I’ve been at the Daily Illini since the beginning of my freshman year where I covered women’s basketball and softball. I was fortunate enough to get the assistant editor position during the second semester of my freshman year. I’m from Naperville, Illinois and I am a die hard Chicago Bears fan! I love playing pickup basketball, quoting “The Office” and eating Korean BBQ. I’m excited to be an assistant sports editor and will look to continue to bring quality content to the sports page.
