Alexis Tolentino, 19, was born and raised in Kapahulu. She is currently enrolled in Liberal Arts at KCC but has plans to go into nursing. After this semester finishes, Tolentino plans to go to Las Vegas and attend the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). After graduating high school Tolentino’s first choice was to attend UNLV, but she decided to come to KCC for her first year to ease her transition into college.
When Tolentino is not in school she is a musician by trade. She enjoys freelancing with a group of musicians in local places around Oʻahu and throughout the other islands.
“I actually play more traditional instruments, like ukulele, base, stick guitar, stuff like that,” Tolentino said. “… I’ve played pretty much all of Waikīkī and the outer islands at different festivals.”
