Pono Kuliaeloaʻa Naʻauao Hōlualoa Kahili

Pono Kuliaeloaʻa Naʻauao Hōlualoa Kahili lives in Maunolaha with his wife and extended family. Kahili is 75 percent Hawaiian. His name was chosen by his father and is roughly translated to concepts of “enlightenment” and “wisdom.” Although he currently works in the engineering department of a hotel loading dock, the Liberal Arts major is uninterested in the field. Instead, he wants to pursue something in the area of mechanics after he is done at KCC. “I wanna be able to fix something," he said. "Look at it and fix it … I’m thinking about doing that.” In his free time, Kahili likes to work in his yard with his grandma. She does the planting and he helps by doing the heavy labor when they work together.

    Kristina Chow is a first-year student majoring in Liberal Arts. Having recently graduated from Kalani High School, the 18-year-old decided that attending KCC would be an easier transition from high school into college rather than starting at a university. In the future, Chow said that she does plan on attending UH Mānoa to pursue a bachelor's degree in Secondary Language Studies. Upon completing her degree, Chow is hoping that she will get accepted into the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) program, an opportunity that would allow her to teach in Japan. Outside of school, Chow works a construction job that involves having to check fire pumps and high rises, which she expressed is a job that not many people her age or gender will typically do. "I get to ... track all of the different data that comes out of the fire pump that goes up into the sprinklers so that it can control the fire," Chow said. "It's a really good experience though."
