“After [they] helped … it was a really good experience, and it made me want to be an EMT,” he said.

Satya Sokei-Bhanot

20 year old Satya Sokei-Bhanot is a first year Liberal Arts major from Kaimuki. He currently works at the testing facility at Llama Library, but he hopes to achieve a law degree. Since both of his parents and his uncles are all lawyers, he wants to understand how law works.

“It seems pretty interesting … and it’s mostly common sense when it comes to figuring out if someone’s guilty or not,” Sokei-Bhanot stated, “There’s a lot [of different types of lawyers], but I’ll probably be a prosecutor.”

After he graduated high school, he is mostly staying home at home and relaxing when not working or studying. Once he finishes his two years at KCC, he is willing to move from Hawaiʻi for a better education, though he’d prefer to stay here.

Vlladeemarl Nicolas

18 year old Vlladeemarl Nicolas is a first year Liberal Arts major originally from Molokai. He moved to O‘ahu after high school because, while he does want to remain close to home, he saw a better college education here.

In his free time he enjoys playing video games, drawing, and hanging out with his friends. His interest in drawing is what has helped him decide to pursue graphic arts at a mainland university after KCC. He has no big dreams, but as a general goal for life, he wants to focus on the now.

“I’m just trying to live life, just trying to be a better person,” Nicolas said.

Currently, he’s looking for any part-time job in order to bring in some income. He lives with his uncle and cousins in Kalihi, and wants to give back to them.
