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.
