Violet Kim (of K-town Reality Show) Interview: All Violet Everything
Let’s start with a lazy question: who is Violet Kim?
I am a very unselfish only child. I have a tendency to trust people too much and put everyone and do everything else before myself. I can be narcissistic but I do it to be funny, not because I actually believe it, hence why talking about myself makes me feel uncomfortable. I’m very sassy when it comes to interacting with people. I am more on the quiet side and tend to keep to myself because I think a lot and analyze every situation. I do love to meet new people as long as they’re not obnoxious or opinionated.
I love to share knowledge, whether it’s about relationships, food, life, motherhood, whatever. If I know something, I’m going to share it with the world.
Tell us about growing up privileged and how that’s shaped you as a person.
My first car was a 1999 CLK in 1998 when I turned 16 and my parents provided me with everything I needed and wanted. I guess being privileged means different things to different people but to me, it means to not have any financial worry or burden growing up.
With the changes in my life, I know that I am more realistic with adulthood and know that money does not come easily. The crazy part is, when I did have to start supporting myself financially, I didn’t know how I would react to it all, but I managed to juggle multiple jobs, be a mom and take care of myself.
There’s a saying, “It is better to have and to lose than never having it at all,” and I disagree because now I’ve tasted the “good” life and I have a standard for how I want my life to turn out. As opposed to if I had never been privileged, I would not stress about wanting to provide the same for my child as my parents did for me. Being content is a huge key in living, and that is something I have an issue with. But in a sense, it gives me more drive and makes me more hungry.
