Ching 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.

- Dylan KhoeFrom Nu'uanu, 20-year-old Dylan Khoe hopes to have a future in animation. Khoe spends his free time drawing digital paintings, making animations, watching anime, and playing video games on the computer. While he finds that painting and making animations are fun, they can get frustrating when things don't go the way he wants them to so he relaxes in those situations by looking up references or watching some anime or playing his games, mostly Team Fortress 2. He got into digital painting from watching YouTube videos and went from drawing to digital. Khoe is waiting to apply to the New Media Arts Program with his portfolio at the end of the next semester for the beginning of the next school year. Despite having his hobbies and enjoying what he does, Khoe is also dedicated to learning more about his trade as he studies resources and attends lectures from guest speakers when animators come. "I'm waiting [to get connections] until I get into the program," Khoe said. "Right now I'm just looking for knowledge I guess."
