Tiare Tom

Tiare Tom has been on Oahu for two years. She moved here from Newport Beach, California to go to school, since part of her family lives on the island. The 22-year-old is working towards a degree in Art; she would like to be a museum curator in the future. Tom currently volunteers at the Honolulu Museum of Art, where she hopes to establish connections and get a foot in the door for future career opportunities.

At the moment, she’s been working in her final school projects. “It’s been a good semester. I like being back in school,” she said.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, going to the beach and hiking. Her go-to hike is Koko Head Crater Trail.

    Majoring in Hospitality and Tourism, Julia Chung is a first-year KCC student. From Honolulu, the 18-year-old chose her major based on the future career she is interested in becoming in the future, a flight attendant. Having been taught the Japanese language by her mother since the moment she was born, Chung said she can use her bilingual skills in the airlines field to interact with passengers more effectively. Chung looks forward to traveling so that she can learn from every place that she visits. In the meantime, Chung is taking a Speech 151 course to improve her public speaking and to ease the nervousness she often feels when opening up to others. Chung said that being in this class will benefit her in terms of what a flight attendant would have to do when demonstrating safety protocols and communicating with passengers on the plane. During her free time, Chung enjoys hiking and going to the beach with friends.
