In public, Kim Lim is always sparkling and stylish, with a cluster of Cartier Love and Juste un Clou bracelets on her arm. Asked if they have a special meaning, she says with a smile: “I usually go out without much jewellery, I just like to stack different bracelets.”
But beyond being accessories, the bracelets are also a cover. When she removes them, her wrist is encircled with scars. They are old wounds, each scar a record of her little-known past.
At the lowest point of her life, she says she tried to do “stupid things”, without elaborating further.
It is a past she rarely talks about. She says she decided to open up because many young girls these days battle depression and she hopes they will not take the same self-destructive path.
