Eri Kitaji, 19, is originally from Osaka, Japan. Kitaji is having a difficult time deciding what she wants to study in school, so she has decided to get her Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts. In the future, Kitaji wants to continue her education at UH Mānoa once she figures out an area of study that she is passionate about. Currently, she is taking a botany class, which has been her favorite class so far at KCC.
“Because I like natural science and I really like plants. So the class has been really interesting to me,” Kitaji said.
Since being in Hawaiʻi, Kitaji has loved the friendliness of the people she has met. She has hiked Diamond Head, tried snorkeling and really enjoys going to the beach.
