Xavier Herrera is from Kapolei, Oʻahu, and is in his first semester at KCC with a major in physics. What interests Herrera most about physics is how abstract it is and that nothing is congruent. He originally received an associate’s degree in Physics but now, at the age of 27, he works behind a cubicle as a network engineer at Ford Island. Herrera moved to Oʻahu at the age of 13 in 2003 when his father was stationed to work here in the military. Being part Mexican and Cuban, he says that the quality he likes most about Hawaiʻi is how it’s so welcoming here and how the people aren’t prejudice of race as they are in the mainland.

- Vlladeemarl Nicolas18 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.
