Fiorella Chau

Fiorella Chau was born 17 years ago in Lima, Peru, and is currently in her second semester of the major in Liberal Arts at KCC.

After finishing high school, she decided to move to Oʻahu and start studying here. Her mother suggested that studying outside Peru would open doors and that it would give her better opportunities in the future, compared to studying in her native country.

“I started studying Liberal Arts because I really like the design,” she said. “I dream of being able to work in the fashion industry and create my own couture designs.”

After graduating, she would like to transfer to a university in California, although she is still looking for information and trying to choose the most ideal for her future.

“My inspiration when talking about fashion is American designer Vera Wang,” Chau said. “I like that her designs are exclusive and that celebrities order her wedding dresses.”

Chau said that she likes clothes of all styles very much and that in the future, she would love to open her own company with a style similar to that of Gucci.

She lives in Kaimuki, and in her spare time, she enjoys going to the gym every morning, doing hikes, or going to the beach with her friends for fun.

“I really like living in Hawaiʻi,” she said. “This summer I will go on vacation to Peru for three months, and I am very happy that I will be reunited with my family.”

    Chas Efhan is a 19-year-old liberal arts with a concentration in business major. As a native of Nuʻuanu, Efhan is in his sophomore year of college. He plans on transferring into UH Mānoa's accounting program next semester. "Today's world is so focused around markets, businesses, and money," Efhan said. "A lot of jobs are situated around businesses, and because of that I want to get a business degree. It's a really versatile degree that can land me a lot of different jobs. "Efhan's goal is to own his own business where he manufactures and builds his own products. He loves to repair surfboards and fix anything related to fiberglass. However, Efhan believes that he will start his post-college job at a business firm. "I think I'll start at a business firm after Mānoa to save and invest my money so that I can buy my own company someday," he said. "I want to build composites in the future; preferably stuff dealing with carbon-fiber, surfboards, or canoe making. Those would all be really cool. I want to create things that bring people happiness. "Efhan's advice to future business majors is to just love what you're doing. He said that you must be interested in the field as a whole, and be motivated to work hard. He believes it might take a while, but you'll get to your end goal eventually.
