Mikayla Shankles is a first-year student attending KCC with the intention of either majoring in computer or software engineering. Mikayla initially wanted to major in civil engineer, but after her uncle – who is a civil engineer himself – said that it wouldn’t suit her, she chose between computer and software due to her passion for building her own computers and creating applications. During her free time, Mikayla enjoys taking long walks on the beach to relieve stress. Mikayla is also a Lunalilo Scholar from the Lunalilo Scholarship Program. Mikayla stated that she had never been a scholar before, and finds it awesome to be one knowing that she has people supporting her.

- Vlladeemarl Nicolas18 year old Vlladeemarl Nicolas is a first year Liberal Arts major originally from Molokai. He moved to O‘ahu after high school because, while he does want to remain close to home, he saw a better college education here. In his free time he enjoys playing video games, drawing, and hanging out with his friends. His interest in drawing is what has helped him decide to pursue graphic arts at a mainland university after KCC. He has no big dreams, but as a general goal for life, he wants to focus on the now. “I’m just trying to live life, just trying to be a better person,” Nicolas said. Currently, he’s looking for any part-time job in order to bring in some income. He lives with his uncle and cousins in Kalihi, and wants to give back to them.
