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.

- Xavier HerreraXavier 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.
