Adam Pada

Adam Pada is a 21-year-old first-year student from Kahaluʻu. He is interested in a Computer Science degree, though he currently does not have an official major. He decided to attend Kapiʻolani Community College as Windward Community College did not have the classes he needed for that particular major.

Pada was always keen to get into the computer science field, as he loves working with computers and learning about their technology. He hopes to continue working with them once he graduates, but is unsure of his exact plans.

“I’m still trying to figure that out, though, my future,” Pada said, “Like everyone else.”

He works at Yamashiro’s Building Supply, which his family is connected to through the owner. It’s a simple job that allows him to focus mainly on his education, something that is important to him. In his free time, Pada enjoys going to the gym in order to stay in shape. There is not much spare time in his life because he prefers to concentrate on school and work.
