About Kayla Kim

Hello! I was Laidlaw scholar in 2019, and I studied national, regional, and local identity in northern Tajikistan through the lens of women's fashion. 

Now, I put this cross-cultural experience to use every day working in communications for the UN Mine Action Service which removes landmines from conflict and post-conflict regions.

Please feel free to get in touch. I'm always happy to meet new people and chat, especially about nationalism/politics of gender/Central Asia/demining/UN/writing or even ballroom dance :)
