Tell us about yourself? Hey there! I am Kim Kissh an aspiring professional pilot that loves to make people smile. I'm active in my sorority, Alpha Xi Delta, as well as other organizations on and off my campus like Dreams Soar Inc. a non-profit I volunteer for! I'm a full time student and part time beach bum. When I'm not flying, studying, or volunteering, I'm at the dog beach with my adorable black lab/chow mix, Captain, or learning how to ride the waves. I grew up on a lake with a wakeboard always under my feet so now that I'm at school at the "world's most famous beach", Daytona Beach, I've traded the wakeboard for a surf board! I believe the key to life is finding the positive in everything and always changing your perspective. I feel that a lifestyle like USA Palm is one I'm already invested in.
What part of USA Palm peaked your interest? At frist USA Palm caught my interest because of the colors! When you look good you feel good, am I right? But secondly, after looking into USA Palm I've adored the mission to help others and make the world a better and more clean place. I believe in paying it forward and to always give when you can. I'm interested in USA Palm for not only the bright style but to become apart of something bigger than yourself!
How do you Enjoy the Palm Life? I enjoy Palm Life by taking advantage of my school home in Daytona Beach, Florida! Don't worry I already asked and the answer is no, you can't minor in going to the beach. I've recently learned how to surf after volunteering at an event called "Surfers for Autism" where we as volunteers were in the water with autistic children teaching them how to surf. It was so heartwarming and inspiring that I had to fully learn for myself! I'm still an amateur but I get better every time. It helps having a water-loving dog so whenever I get the chance Captain and I head to the dog beach to get some vitamin D!
What sports or activities do you participate in? Currently I'm not a sport team like I was in high school but I'm always down for a pick up soccer game or a quick lacrosse scrimmage. On the weekends you can find me trying to catch some waves in the water or surfing the clouds in an airplane. When I'm back home in New York for the winter I'll be out on the slopes with skis or a snowboard until my feet are numb.
What is your favorite vacation spot? Why? Aruba! Its the happy island! My family and I have gone to Aruba to celebrate all its joy for as long as I can remember. The light breeze and guarantee for sunshine makes for a great family vacation to relieve some college stress.
Why do you think you are a good USA Palm Ambassador? I believe I'm a good ambassador because I bring positive vibes that USA Palm embodies. USA Palm is more than clothing, its a lifestyle that embraces the beauty of art into fashion that I will proudly represent.
What else should we know about you? I'd like to think of myself as down to earth, creative, and sometimes a little dorky. To testify this, I've recently won the "Golden Retriever" award at our last Alpha Xi Delta formal for being fun, loyal, and a little bit quirky-just like a Golden Retriever. My passion for helping people stems from my love for aviation. I hope to inspire the future of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and aviation professionals to always follow their dreams. The aviation industry is a small community that empowers individuals to stride for greatness and success. The industry has come a long way but we are constantly advancing and I want to be apart of the future success!
How will you make the Palm Life better? I will make Palm Life better by being a great representative for a lifestyle that embraces expression of creativity, fun, new ideas, and style. I want to bring positive energy and charisma to brand that deserves it!
