Yuree Kū has been at KCC since 2011 and currently works at the Office of Student Affairs (OSA). Originally, Kū had obtained an associate’s degree in Liberal Arts at KCC before enrolling into the Nurse Aide program. Since then Kū has decided that she no longer wants to be a nurse and instead wants to learn more about engineering–mechanical engineering in particular is what interests her the most. In the meantime, Kū is a part of ‘Ike, the Hawai’i Calculus Academy’s six-week math concentrated summer program. The program takes place at KCC and Kū is a part of it to cultivate her interest in the pre-engineering field.

- 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.
