Ginessa Taa Gapasin is a second-year student at KCC who plans to major in nursing. While she attended Moanalua High School, she picked up paddle boarding as a side hobby.
Originally she planned on coming to KCC solely for its paramedics program. She changed her focus instead to nursing because she figured that nursing will be an easier job even though it’s harder to get into, whereas being in the EMT is easy, but the work would be harder.
On her free time she likes to go to the beach. For paddle boarding she likes to go to Pōka‘ī Bay, for hanging out, Kailua beach.Read More

- Paulo NikkososaPaulo Nikkososa is a first-year student at KCC. This year is his first semester since his three year gap from school, his major being Liberal Arts. His mode of transportation to and from school being his bike. "[I started cycling] about a year ago. It wasn't really much of a passion at first, it was kind of a decision in life where I was like I need to either get a car or I cycle. Then I weighed out the pros and cons and cycling was more environmentally friendly and it's more friendly for my body, so I chose cycling. And, the more and more I cycled, it got me out a bit more and I got into racing. I ride about 30 miles a day, from Kalihi to here. I started this just about a year ago with this specific type of cycling, which is track. But you know, I've always had a love for bikes since I was young."
