Danelle Gallo, Oʻahu resident by way of Connecticut, is a KCC pre-nursing student applying for either the LPN or RN program for Fall 2017. Her first love is art, of which Danelle admits, “I’ll always be an artist and a musician.” Danelle has channeled her passion for art and music into her studies of medicine, and she hopes to become a compassionate healer in the field. She is currently wrapping up a master’s degree in Oriental Medicine from the World Medicine Institute. “We need both (western and eastern medicine approaches) to be healthy … and so I’ve been studying acupuncture and medicinal herbs. I feel like I want a really comprehensive view of medicine,” says Danelle. In her spare time you can find Danelle enjoying the outdoors, creating music, and blending art creatively with political action.
