Xavier Herrera

Xavier Herrera
Xavier Herrera is from Kapolei, Oʻahu, and is in his first semester at KCC with a major in physics. What interests Herrera most about physics is how abstract it is and that nothing is congruent. He originally received an associate’s degree in Physics but now, at the age of 27, he works behind a cubicle as a network engineer at Ford Island. Herrera moved to Oʻahu at the age of 13 in 2003 when his father was stationed to work here in the military. Being part Mexican and Cuban, he says that the quality he likes most about Hawaiʻi is how it’s so welcoming here and how the people aren’t prejudice of race as they are in the mainland.

    Kaitlin Victorino is a first-year student at KCC who plans to major in Liberal Arts - Business Administration. She enjoys drawing and painting, but school responsibilities have limited her time to do so. She has found that bullet journaling is a good substitute and works well as a creative outlet. "Bullet journalling is basically like a planner but without all the structure. You can do whatever you want with it. Lists, budgeting ...," Victorino says. She went to school in the Philippines, where she is originally from, and later came to study in Hawaii. With English being her first language, she says she struggled with some of the social views and how she speaks and understands school subjects in her home country. "I have more role models here [than in the Philippines]," she says.
