Kenta Seo is originally from Tokyo, Japan. He has been in Hawai‘i for five months. Back in his home country, the 27-year-old used to be a swimming coach. He did that for nearly 10 years, then he saved up money and decided to come to America to pursue his studies.

He enrolled at KCC to pursue a degree in Hospitality. Currently, Seo is taking an ESOL class so that he can improve his English for upcoming pre-requirements. Seo would like to stay in the U.S., but thinks his options are limited due to visa restrictions.
