Prior to teaching at KCC, Kumu Robert worked at Ānuenue and helped develop the math program there. He also currently works to develop 8th-grade mathematics curriculum for Native Hawaiians.
Young likes to spend his time working at the Institute For Human Services (IHS), a homeless shelter for families and children in Kalihi. There he runs an after-school science and math program.
“I think I like learning about the world more, math is just a means to do it,” said Kumu Robert.
He explains that math is a universal concept that can apply to anything. Kumu Robert prefers to not focus on one thing but instead likes to study many things including neuroscience and physics. Math gives him the tools to understand the world.Read More

- Christopher SalesChristopher Sales, 19, is currently a Liberal Arts major at KCC in his second year. Sales is hoping to get into the nursing program at KCC but still needs to finish up a course in zoology this summer to complete all of the necessary prerequisites. Sales ultimately wants to finish his degree at UH Mānoa because he believes that a 4-year degree will look more appealing to hospitals. He has wanted to be a nurse since his freshman year in high school and would love to be employed by Kuakini Medical Center or Lē‘ahi Hospital in the future. When Sales has spare time he enjoys playing games on his phone and drawing.
