He is currently in his second semester at KCC and plans to move back to Florida when he finishes his classes this spring. Faison hopes to transfer to a 4-year college somewhere around Tampa or Orlando. While living out in Hawaiʻi he has enjoyed the beaches, hiking and the beautiful weather.

Jennifer Cho is 21 years old and was born and raised in Honolulu. She is a former student at KCC and chose to major in liberal arts when she attended so that she could get all of her core classes out of the way. Currently, Cho goes to UH Mānoa where she is completing her BA in Travel Industry Management and she works part-time at KCC as a student assistant for Honda International Center where she assists international students with anything they need.
“I help my supervisors, help with students, answer basic questions, email students and answer phone calls,” Cho says about her job at KCC. “I just help with the international students that are currently attending KCC.”
In her free time Cho enjoys hanging out with her friends and playing golf as a hobby. One of her favorite courses to play at is the Hawaiʻi Kai Par-3 because it’s a simple course.Read More

Her intended major is Hospitality and Tourism, but she has recently changed her plans of working in the field and instead, wants to go back to Japan and teach English. “I wanna improve my English skill first,” said Watanabe. Currently, her favorite hospitality class is HOSP 168, as she likes the professor. In that class, students sometimes go out to Waikiki or Downtown and simulate guided tours. She is passionate about volunteering: last week she went to Los Angeles to participate in a conference that aimed to strengthen the relationship between Japan and the United States.
