Thao Huynh is a second-year college student at KCC majoring in hospitality. At the age of 24, Huynh has already received a B.A. in hospitality in her home country, Vietnam, but has decided to go back to school in Hawai’i since her foreign degree wouldn’t qualify in the U.S., which is where she eventually wants to live as a citizen. Huynh currently resides in Waikīkī with her uncle and cousins. Over the summer she plans on relaxing after the long school year and working part time at a Vietnamese restaurant in Chinatown.
