Arvin Hontake is in his second semester at his first year here at KCC. He graduated from Roosevelt high school. Hontake grew up in Makiki, Oʻahu, and still lives there with his parents and his younger brother. He is now 24 and has decided to major in electrical engineering.

- Bianca QuibuyenBianca Quibuyen is a second-year student majoring in Accounting. Originally from Manila, Philippines she chose to go into accounting because of the stability and job security that a career in that field could offer. "Accounting is a really good major, especially here in the U.S. since everybody needs accountants, like all the companies that you go to need accountants," Quibuyen said. "So I think it's job security." Her plan once she finishes her second year at KCC is to transfer to UH West Oʻahu to complete her Bachelor's in Accounting. When Quibuyen is not at school studying she also works at First Hawaiian Bank. In her leisure time she enjoys reading books and takes up swimming as a hobby. She has experience swimming competitively but since she quit training competitively it has become an activity she enjoys doing in her spare time.
