Yuree Kū has been at KCC since 2011 and currently works at the Office of Student Affairs (OSA). Originally, Kū had obtained an associate’s degree in Liberal Arts at KCC before enrolling into the Nurse Aide program. Since then Kū has decided that she no longer wants to be a nurse and instead wants to learn more about engineering–mechanical engineering in particular is what interests her the most. In the meantime, Kū is a part of ‘Ike, the Hawai’i Calculus Academy’s six-week math concentrated summer program. The program takes place at KCC and Kū is a part of it to cultivate her interest in the pre-engineering field.

- Arvin HontakeArvin 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. Hontake chose this major because he wanted to pursue a career that had to do with studying engineering.
