Emma Eckfeldt is a first-year student at KCC as a liberal arts major with a concentration in education. Eckfeldt is of Japanese descent and has many family members who are fluent in Japanese, which has inspired her to go into the JET program or Japanese English Teaching program when she transfers to UH-Mānoa. She is currently taking four classes and is in an elementary Japanese class. Her goal after graduation is to move to Japan as an English teacher to teach young elementary-age students.

- Justin LospocJustin Lospoc is a 34-year-old Liberal Arts major from Waipahu. He plans to start Respiratory Therapy classes next semester. Lospoc worked with respiratory specialists while serving as a corpsman in the U.S. Navy. “It just intrigues me that breathing is essential to life, and I want to know how the human lungs work," he said. After graduation, Lospoc wishes to move to Washington or Oregon after graduation to be closer to snow, but if he can find a job in the respiratory field here in Oʻahu, he will stay. In his free time, Lospoc enjoys snowboarding, body boarding, and fishing.
