He was also stationed in California for a few years after coming back from South Asia. Mendoza is currently using his GI Bill benefits to further his education as he decided to end his active service. He’s working towards the Radiologic Technology Program at KCC.
“[The military] gave me a lot of opportunities, education-wise. … I had to grow up fast. I was a 20-year old, 19 year-old in charge of guys who were 25-year old guys.”
In his free time, Mendoza enjoys spear fishing.Read More

- Christopher SalesChristopher Sales, 19, is currently a Liberal Arts major at KCC in his second year. Sales is hoping to get into the nursing program at KCC but still needs to finish up a course in zoology this summer to complete all of the necessary prerequisites. Sales ultimately wants to finish his degree at UH Mānoa because he believes that a 4-year degree will look more appealing to hospitals. He has wanted to be a nurse since his freshman year in high school and would love to be employed by Kuakini Medical Center or Lē‘ahi Hospital in the future. When Sales has spare time he enjoys playing games on his phone and drawing.
