Tevin Reiger is a first-year student attending KCC majoring in Business. Reiger chose to attend KCC because of its convenient location and closeness to home, and also because he felt that starting off at a community college rather than a university was ideal.
When he earns his business degree, Reiger, who is openly gay, hopes to open up a restaurant similar to Hooters that would be made comfortable for anyone of the gay community. He explained that at night, the restaurant would turn into a nightclub setting that would host drag shows and more.
“Another business that I kind of want to open is a place where gay teens, and just teens in general who are under the age of 18 or 18 and under, can go have fun and be themselves but in a safe environment,” Reiger said.Read More

- Janelle YouJanelle You, a KCC student majoring in teaching English as a second language, takes part in a jam session with her friends. “I was a professional Taiko drummer in L.A. for the past two and a half years. I started when I was seven, so almost all my life. I’m originally from Maui, I had to finish up school before traveling around, and have a back up plan. So this is my first time living in Oahu. Just this past semester is my first semester (at KCC). I went to the University of Pittsburg in Pennsylvania first before I transferred here, and when I moved to California I pursued a Taiko drum major. I took classes in Santa Monica college. Right now I’m taking a break but I hope to get back into it. I’m just singing with friends now." When asked about the name of her music group, she and her friends jokingly suggest the "Shin-anigans" due to the guitarist's surname being Shin.
