Imposter Caught - High schooler pretending to be a Stanford student!

High school graduate pretends to be a Stanford student, even living in the dorms, buying textbooks and 'studying' for exams

Azia Kim was like any other Stanford freshman. She graduated from one of California's most competitive high schools last June, moved into the dorms during New Student Orientation, talked about upcoming tests and spent her free time with friends.

The only problem is that Azia Kim was never a Stanford student.

Kim, an 18-year-old from Orange County who graduated from Fullerton's Troy High School, lived in Kimball throughout fall and winter quarter. She lived in Okada, the Asian-American theme dorm, until Monday night, when University staff finally caught onto her ruse.

Friends aren't sure of her motive for sneaking onto campus and living a lie, but many speculate that she felt pressure from overbearing parents to attend Stanford - regardless of whether she was admitted.

What Kim's friends do know is that they are scared and angry that someone slipped through the cracks for eight months.

"Personally, I don't feel safe now that Stanford allowed this to happen and that they're not doing anything to ensure the safety of their students," said Amy Zhou
