Ali Petrucci is currently in her second semester at KCC and is majoring in biology so that she can eventually go into medical school.  Ali is originally from Bogota, the capitol of Colombia, but she moved to Hawaiʻi because her husband is in the military and was stationed on Oʻahu.

Ali loves the people and culture of Hawaiʻi and often rides her bike to experience everything the island has to offer.

“I’m also trying to learn how to play the ‘ukulele right now, so I’m spending a bit of time on that,” says Ali. “Other than that, I’m just going to school.”

Yonik Gomez

Yonik Gomez is in his first semester at KCC for his general education classes and he intends on graduating with a degree in radiology technology.

“I always wanted to get into the medical field,” says Yonik, but since his wife already lives the stressful life of a nurse, he’d rather “get a job that’ll be relaxing.”
