Matthew Yoshikawa is a 22-year-old student at both KCC and HCC. As a native of Hawaiʻi Kai, Yoshikawa is majoring in the Fire Program over at his home campus, HCC. As a fourth year student, Yoshikawa hopes to receive an associate degree from the Fire Program so that he can become a future firefighter, a job that he said he has always wanted to go into.
Along with wanting to become a firefighter, Yoshikawa is also majoring in Botany here at KCC.
“I took a couple of classes for Botany to see what it was like, and I liked it,” he said. Yoshikawa’s love for Botany stems from his likable and passionate instructor, Mike Ross.
As a 2015 high school graduate, Yoshikawa has interest in plants and loves to learn new facts about them. Along with looking forward to being a firefighter, Yoshikawa said that majoring in both a Fire Program and Botany is “a good mix.”
