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.
