Agnes Kim is a 24-year-old University of Georgia graduate who loves Christian music, calls herself a “social butterfly” and wants to be an occupational therapist. She is also the survivor of a critical brain injury. 

“I’ve been doing so well, and I’m wanting to do more and more things by myself now,” Kim said. “Like really basic things.” 

Kim, who now lives in Snellville with her parents, was the sole survivor of a fatal car crash in April 2016 in which four UGA students –– Christina Semeria, Brittany Feldman, Kayla Canedo and Halle Scott –– died.

For the past two years, Kim has been working on getting better. Through physical therapy, doctor’s appointments, gym workouts and mental exercises, her condition has improved drastically.


Correction: In a previous version of this video, the accident was said to have happened on Aug. 27. The correct date is April 27. This has since been corrected and The Red & Black regrets this error.
