Ryan Sacro is a first-year student at KCC in the Culinary Arts Program. The inspiration for his choice of study and his love of all cuisines can be traced back to his mother, who by all accounts is an excellent chef. When not playing basketball or hanging out with friends off campus, you can find Ryan leading a lively Bible study with fellow KCC students on Fridays in the ‘Iliahi Courtyard. The group is called One by One and they are affiliated with the Oʻahu Church of Christ, with services at UH Mānoa. Reading the Bible “deepens your relationship with God, and you learn a lot about your character,” says Ryan. His Bible study group also volunteers at a homeless shelter in Waimānalo on the weekends.
- Chingin SeletChing In is a second-year student at KCC whose major is Liberal Arts, though hopes to eventually get into the medical program. He plans on being a nurse in the future to help people with disabilities cope with their disorders. His grandmother was the reason as to why he chose to pursue this career path since she is half-paralyzed and he wanted to gain more knowledge on how he could be of more use to her. When In isn't with his grandmother, he plays basketball in his downtime. During his senior year in high school, he was given the chance to join his school's basketball team after years of always being interested in the sport but never actually playing competitively. The opportunity presented itself when his friends told him that the team was short one player. Having gotten over the initial hump of playing for the first time, he simply "went with the flow," and it turned out that he liked it.
