Christopher Sales, 19, is currently a Liberal Arts major at KCC in his second year. Sales is hoping to get into the nursing program at KCC but still needs to finish up a course in zoology this summer to complete all of the necessary prerequisites.
Sales ultimately wants to finish his degree at UH Mānoa because he believes that a 4-year degree will look more appealing to hospitals. He has wanted to be a nurse since his freshman year in high school and would love to be employed by Kuakini Medical Center or Lē‘ahi Hospital in the future.
When Sales has spare time he enjoys playing games on his phone and drawing.Read More
Dennis Ho is a nursing major taking prerequisites at the moment. He’s been working on pharmacology assignments, which he says it’s “really hard.” Ho got inspired to pursue a second career in nursing after he had a family member with medical needs, and so far he really enjoys his course.
Aside from studying, Ho has a photography company that provides services for school events, such as proms, graduation parties and yearbooks. The Nuʻuanu resident likes to go swimming, running and playing volleyball in his free time.Read More
