Ms. Kyung Ja Kim resides at HANA Center's Moogoong Terrace and instructs Korean craft classes for fellow senior housing residents. Ms. Kim immigrated with her two sons to Chicago from Seoul, Korea when she was in her thirties. As a survivor of breast cancer, she struggled with depression for years. Ms. Kim began making Korean paper crafts as a healing activity and now enjoys sharing this gift with others. This month, Ms. Kim volunteered with HANA Center to lead a craft workshop at the Chicago Children's Museum's Heart & Seoul exhibit, sharing the art of Korean paper crafts with more than 80 children and their families!
