    Alisha Kahele-Manners is a second-year student majoring in nursing attending the University of Rhode Island and taking summer school courses at KCC. Kahele-Manners drew inspiration to take up this field of study from visits to her pediatrician, who she shared is a loving and caring doctor in which she was able to build a connection with. Although she is only attending KCC for summer courses, she said that she enjoys the environment of the campus and how small the classes are. "You can see the professors ... they make it easy to go and see them," Kahele-Manners said. "They provide a lot of resources to help you learn here." Kahele-Manners plays soccer during her free time, which is a sport that she developed a passion for during her time at Kamehameha Schools. She made the varsity team during her freshman year, and now, after being recruited to play for college, enjoys it even more, especially since it helps her to pay for tuition.
