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.
