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.
- Mitchell ChamnessMitchell Chamness is an 18-year-old Freshman at KCC who is still undecided in his major and career goals. While he enjoys theater, he acknowledges the lack of jobs in that area and is instead looking into engineering, architecture, graphic design, and physical therapy. Over winter break, Mitchell spent more time working at his construction job, catching up on lost sleep after a stressful semester, and hanging out with friends returning from their mainland universities. He also listened to a lot of alternative and indie rock music over break, particularly music from the band Amber Run.
