19-year-old Lourdes Killeto was born in Micronesia but was raised in Kalihi. It is her first year at KCC as a Nursing major. She has always wanted to attend here since high school. Commercials for KCC would play on television, catching her attention, and her older brother, who attended HCC, recommended she go to KCC instead of any of the other community colleges on Hawaiʻi.


Lourdes chose nursing because when her grandma passed away she wanted to know what had caused it in order to help people in the future. Her original dream was to work at Kapiʻolani Medical Center for Women and Children, but now she wishes to move back to Micronesia since there is a lack of adequate nursing there. After she graduates, she plans to transfer to UH Mānoa to continue working towards her degree.


Currently, she works as a Pre-Pacifica Peer Mentor above Subway.
