Tengfei Shi is a 17-year-old KCC student from China pursuing studies in the field of Natural Sciences. Shi’s decision in coming to Hawaiʻi was due to his parent’s wishes for him to study in the islands. He said that he’s always had an interest for the science and engineering field, sharing that he hopes to find a career in architectural engineering.

To pursue this dream, Shi will be moving to Los Angeles in Spring 2019 to study architecture. Shi is still deciding between enrolling at Pasadena City College or East Los Angeles College.
