Bianca Quibuyen

Bianca Quibuyen is a second-year student majoring in Accounting. Originally from Manila, Philippines she chose to go into accounting because of the stability and job security that a career in that field could offer.

“Accounting is a really good major, especially here in the U.S. since everybody needs accountants, like all the companies that you go to need accountants,” Quibuyen said. “So I think it’s job security.”

Her plan once she finishes her second year at KCC is to transfer to UH West Oʻahu to complete her Bachelor’s in Accounting. When Quibuyen is not at school studying she also works at First Hawaiian Bank. In her leisure time she enjoys reading books and takes up swimming as a hobby. She has experience swimming competitively but since she quit training competitively it has become an activity she enjoys doing in her spare time.

Kristina Chow

Kristina Chow is a first-year student majoring in Liberal Arts. Having recently graduated from Kalani High School, the 18-year-old decided that attending KCC would be an easier transition from high school into college rather than starting at a university. In the future, Chow said that she does plan on attending UH Mānoa to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Language Studies. Upon completing her degree, Chow is hoping that she will get accepted into the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) program, an opportunity that would allow her to teach in Japan.

Outside of school, Chow works a construction job that involves having to check fire pumps and high rises, which she expressed is a job that not many people her age or gender will typically do.

“I get to … track all of the different data that comes out of the fire pump that goes up into the sprinklers so that it can control the fire,” Chow said. “It’s a really good experience though.”
