Subject Matters Series: Self-Rebranding

When we think of rebranding, we tend to think of companies or non-profits creating a new look and feel for themselves. We don’t necessarily think about the need to rebrand ourselves. But self-rebranding is just as important. Whether you’re thinking about transitioning into a new field or taking your career to the next level, it’s important to create a resume and portfolio that will position you to attract the right audience. Designing for ourselves is often more challenging than designing for others. We tend to put ourselves last and our work first. So how can we get inspired to rebrand ourselves?

Join us in a conversation with Sophiea Kim and Jacqueline Meyer as they share their career-transition journeys and the challenges they’ve faced along the way. Learn inspiring stories and be ready to ask questions. This Subject Matters Series talk will be followed by our Toolkit Series workshop also lead by Sophiea and Jacqueline.


The Subject Matters Series brings us together for open discussion and shared learning on topics we wonder about.


Sophiea Kim
Sophiea Kim is a creative director and entrepreneur based in Los Angeles with passions for creativity, education, and commercial real estate investment. She has founded InnerChild Creatives as a community platform for young professionals who believe in the importance of finding purpose, making time for one’s craft, and cultivating a supportive community to grow together with. Today, InnerChild Creatives has further transformed to a creative collective offering services in cinematography, art direction and production, with a strong mission to volunteer time guiding young adults who desire to connect with their inner child through creativity.

In her free time, she serves as an alumni affinity board member for her alma mater, Harvard-Westlake, loves spending time with family and friends, and enjoys binge-watching Korean dramas.

Jacqueline Meyer
Jacqueline stepped into the new world of recruiting and staffing with Yellow Bob in 2021, with an eagerness to learn and fine-tune her craft. Jacqueline has worked with many companies around Los Angeles, including The Honest Company, Sugarfina, MPC, and Lula’s Garden, with a main focus on Customer Service and Sales. Her uplifting, positive communication with clients is unmatched, and will work hard to provide the best experience for anyone she encounters. No mountain is too high, and Jacqueline loves to take on any new task with eagerness and positivity.

In her spare time, Jacqueline is a LA foodie, who always is trying the latest and greatest new restaurants and bars around LA. Her favorites include MillCross for that perfect almond milk latte, and Etta, for that perfect spicy pizza. Jacqueline will never say no to a heated game of Catan, always is on the search for the most unique vintage pieces, and always planning her next vacation.
