Arvin Hontake is in his second semester at his first year here at KCC. He graduated from Roosevelt high school. Hontake grew up in Makiki, Oʻahu, and still lives there with his parents and his younger brother. He is now 24 and has decided to major in electrical engineering. Hontake chose this major because he wanted to pursue a career that had to do with studying engineering. Though school is somewhat hard, he says that he is managing and particularly enjoys his Communications 201 class with professor Keith Kashiwada.
