(Noah) Gi Don Kang is a first year student attending KCC majoring in Korean. He is full Korean, and after living in Korea for 11 years, he moved to Hawaiʻi nine years ago and graduated from Kalani High School. Kang said that he originally planned to attend UH, however, since he didn’t have his green card at the time, he said it was much easier for him to start off at KCC. Now that he has his green card, he plans on transferring to UH Mānoa for the Fall 2017 semester to get into the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM).

“I think that KCC is just a very family oriented [place],” Kang said. “Everyone kind of knows each other and … the environment is really nice because everyone’s just so nice to each other and so helpful.”
