Merlisa Hiroshy is in her fourth semester at KCC studying for a Liberal Arts degree. Born and raised in Kalihi, 19 year old Merlisa originally planned to transfer to UH Manoa, but her plans have changed and she has decided to take a different path. She is unsure of where it is going to take her, though she is content to follow it.

In the little free time she has, Merlisa likes to sketch random things that catch her eye. Since she is a full time student, Merlisa does not have a lot of time for much else. Other hobbies are eating and sleeping. Her main priority is focusing on school, but if she didn’t attend KCC, “there would probably be a lot more [I would] do.”
