Kristian Pollack is a 19-year-old Kaiser High School alumnus in his second semester at Kapi’olani Community College. He’s currently majoring in accounting and plans to transfer to the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa upon completion of his associate’s degree. He was born in Arizona but moved to Hawai‘i at the age of 2 and has resided in Honolulu since then.

- Imie Rose ZaluagaImie came to Hawai‘i from Cagayan de Oro City, in the Philippines, two years ago. She started school last fall, and is taking general education courses at the moment. Her sister owns a care home, and she currently works as a Certified Nurse Assistant — CNA — there, helping to take care of three patients. The job experience has motivated Imie to further her studies and pursue a career in nursing. However, the 23-year old believes "it is really hard to get into nursing school". In her free time, she enjoys the beautiful hikes and beaches on the island. Her favorite is Lanikai beach, in Kailua.
