Hey there! (Looking for the blog? Click here.)
My name is Kimberly Horton, and I’m a freshman studying music and Computer Science at George Fox University in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
I love to solve problems. Whether it’s finding the most elegant way to write a line of code or figuring out which chord fits best into a progression, I love the challenge of finding a way and discovering solutions. Maybe that’s why I love writing and the satisfaction that comes from finding just the right word; or why I study psychology and rationality in my spare time to figure out how people think. As long as there’s a problem to solve or a challenge to puzzle over, it’s bound to be something I love!
My home is international. I’m an alumnus of Dalat International School in Penang, Malaysia, where I attended middle school and high school; and while I sometimes feel a little out of touch with America in its current state of affairs, I’ve come out of growing up in Asia with a better understanding of the world and its cultures, high academic standards, and a wide vocabulary of international slang. Ai ya!
I like to keep myself busy; over the course of my high school years, I’ve been on my school’s parliamentary debate team, an actress in multiple school productions, a soundboard runner at my church, and taught myself tuba, guitar, saxophone, and euphonium. In university, I’ve been in Drumline, Pep Band, George Fox’s nationally-recognized Symphonic Band (on euphonium), and am a member of the university’s William Penn Honors Program, a Socratic seminar-style Great Books program.
This site is host to a variety of things professional and personal; you can learn more about who I am, take a look at my resume, or read my Christ-centered student blog–and if you have any questions, you can contact me via e-mail. 🙂
Have a blessed day!
