Humans of IMSA: Daniel Shin (’17)

If you could describe your IMSA experience in one word, how would you describe it?

“I would say… Asians.”


“I feel like, you know, before IMSA my community used to be composed of a lot of just Black and White people, and nothing else. And it was really different, you know? And now I’ve got my Asian homies, you know?  So I feel like the community here is very different, and that’s a good thing. It’s more diverse.”

Is community, then, a really important part of IMSA? 

“Yeah, community is pretty important. It’s influenced my life here at IMSA. Hashtagyol07, if you know what I mean.”

Speaking of Clash, what do you think so far? How’s your first Clash of the Halls?

“It’s been really great, but now 1507 isn’t in first place anymore. We’ll do better though, we’ve really come together as a hall and worked hard this year. Clash has been great, mate. I’d rate it 8 out of 8.”

Now that you’ve experienced Clash, do you think anything different about IMSA? How has it impacted your IMSA experience and sense of community?

“I think Clash made me meet a lot of people inside my hall, and realize how great our hall is as a whole. We really came together for Clash and I think that’s really important in understanding why Clash is so important to everyone.”
