S’Jhane Nones is an 18-year-old student born and raised on the island of Oʻahu, This is her first semester at Kapi‘olani Community College, and she is majoring in Radiology Tech. 

She decided to continue her education after graduating from high school, to make her parents proud, and give back all the sacrifices her family has made for her. 

“I didn’t grow up with money, so I wanted to go to school and get a job where I can make money and live comfortably,” Nones said.

She was expected to pursue nursing because of her mom’s wishes, but she decided to pursue a different career, which her mum would approve of, and that is why she is pursuing Radiology Tech.

So far she is loving her classes and having an amazing time here at KCC.

“I can’t wait to see and experience what I can learn in a span of 2 years,” she said. 

Despite of the many challenges she has been through, she said, “If you believe, you can achieve anything.”
