Ken Imamura, a 43-year-old veteran currently living in Kapahulu, is currently in KCC for his core requirement classes. After finishing his core classes he would like to apply to Hawaiʻi Pacific University, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, or KCC’s nursing school in order to pursue his dream of becoming a nurse and hopefully move onto becoming a nurse anesthetist.
“I love it here, you can’t beat the weather. You can’t beat the temperature of the water,” Imamura said. “You try go back to California and the water is cold.”
Imamura strives to be the cool uncle by taking his niece to the beach and local activities.
