Kiyomi Sanders

Kiyomi Sanders is in her first year at KCC majoring in Liberal Arts with plans to eventually transfer to UH Mānoa. Sanders is hoping to double major in Classics and something in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics field.

With finals quickly approaching Sanders is worried about remembering everything for her cumulative exam in Math 135. Her math class is an accelerated course that covers a new section of the curriculum every week. So instead of having one math course over a 16 week semester, her class broke up into two math classes that are 8 weeks each.

Sanders expresses her concerns for exams, not necessarily because of the difficulty, but because of the exhaustion she is feeling as she nears the end of the fall semester.

“I’m not really worried about finals being really hard, I’m more worried about the fact that I’m so burnt out from the whole semester that I’m having a hard time doing really simple things.”

Jamie Nguyen is 21 years old and originally from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. She moved to O‘ahu 3 years ago for school and is currently in her last semester at KCC majoring in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Business. In January, Nguyen will be transferring to UH Mānoa to complete her degree in International Business Marketing.

While at KCC, Nguyen is working on the Board of Student Publications (BOSP) as the secretary. She enjoys her job because the BOSP has given her the opportunity to work in a professional setting while still being in school. She has enjoyed the opportunity to get to talk with students and staff while working on the BOSP and believes that it is helping her reach her future goals.

“It’s taught me a lot about professionalism and how to work professionally. In the BOSP, we not only work with the students, but we also work with the faculty and staff,” Nguyen said. “I’m a people person so I like communicating with people. So being in the BOSP I get to talk to so many students and staff.”

In her free time Nguyen loves watching movies and goes to the theater whenever she can. Recently she watched the newly released movie “Coco” and loved it.

    Fiorella Chau was born 17 years ago in Lima, Peru, and is currently in her second semester of the major in Liberal Arts at KCC. After finishing high school, she decided to move to Oʻahu and start studying here. Her mother suggested that studying outside Peru would open doors and that it would give her better opportunities in the future, compared to studying in her native country. "I started studying Liberal Arts because I really like the design," she said. "I dream of being able to work in the fashion industry and create my own couture designs." After graduating, she would like to transfer to a university in California, although she is still looking for information and trying to choose the most ideal for her future. "My inspiration when talking about fashion is American designer Vera Wang," Chau said. "I like that her designs are exclusive and that celebrities order her wedding dresses." Chau said that she likes clothes of all styles very much and that in the future, she would love to open her own company with a style similar to that of Gucci. She lives in Kaimuki, and in her spare time, she enjoys going to the gym every morning, doing hikes, or going to the beach with her friends for fun. "I really like living in Hawaiʻi," she said. "This summer I will go on vacation to Peru for three months, and I am very happy that I will be reunited with my family."
