Kim Akano


Hello Everyone! My name is Kimberly, and I am so excited to join you as an RGS at First College. I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Religion where I study race, religion, migration, and transnationalism with a focus on 20th and 21st century Nigerian immigrants living in the U.S.

Before coming to Princeton, I earned my Master of Divinity from Emory University and worked at a non-profit organization in the Midwest. Prior to that, I earned my BA in Psychology from Rice University. The things that bring me the most joy include cooking, yoga, mural tours, and trying different teas. Also, because I call Austin, TX home, I am always looking for the best tacos. Please feel free to say hello, and let me know if there are any ways I can support you in your journey at Princeton. Looking forward to meeting you all!
