Cara likes painting, hiking, and reading. You can usually find her doodling in her notebooks, the artwork matching the subjects she is taking notes on. She’s currently working towards achieving a sustainability certificate because she also enjoys nature.

“I feel very fortunate to be able to finish out my college career in such a culturally and biologically diverse place that has such a strong focus on conservation and sustainability,” she said.

    Leinad Arakaki received her Associate of Science in Nursing from Kauaʻi Community College back in 2002. She was born and raised in Kauaʻi and moved to Oʻahu in 2006. Originally, her plan in coming to KCC was to finish her degree and get her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Since coming back to school Arakaki has rediscovered the passion she has always had for social sciences. "While nursing is a great profession, I always, always was interested in humanities, social sciences," she said. "And when I took my geography course last semester, which would have been part of my bachelor's in Nursing, I realized how much I really love it and still love it and decided to head into a social science field." Arakaki is considering getting her Bachelor of Arts in Geography or even Sociology when she transfers to UH-Mānoa next semester. When she's not busy studying or working, she loves to hike trails like Moanalua trail over on the windward side.
