- Stefan CranstonStefan Cranston is a 20-year-old biology major at KCC. Cranston is a sophomore who's a native of Honolulu. His main goals are to transfer into UH Mānoa's medical school to obtain a Bachelor's of Science in Biology and to become a future doctor. "I've always had a profound interest in biology since I was a kid," Cranston said. "I allow my fascination for life to move me forward. Biology to me is really easy, and I find it more interesting than something complex like physics. I really want to get into the medicine field after I'm finished with KCC." Cranston is currently working towards both an associates degree in Natural Sciences and an associates degree in Liberal Arts at KCC. He is doing this to save money on classes and to complete as many as possible before he transfers to UH Mānoa. "My favorite part of biology is that it gives us a description of everything living and the meaning behind it," Cranston said. "Biology relates to people since we're living creatures too and I like to understand the meaning about everything that we do." Cranston offers important advice for people who are interested in the biological or medical fields. His advice stems from his passion for the subject as a whole. "If you want to be involved with biology, do it because you love it, not because you want a lot of money," Cranston said. "Money matters a little bit, but your passion for biology should be the most important part of your studies and work."
