Kristian Pollack is a 19-year-old Kaiser High School alumnus in his second semester at Kapi’olani Community College. He’s currently majoring in accounting and plans to transfer to the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa upon completion of his associate’s degree. He was born in Arizona but moved to Hawai‘i at the age of 2 and has resided in Honolulu since then.
Pollack spends some of his free time enjoying classic strategy games like solitaire and Mancala, and he’s always prepared for a spontaneous showdown.
“I have an entire bag full of games in case my friends randomly show up,” he said. The wildly popular Cards against Humanity is his favorite choice as of right now.

- Kara RiggsbeeKara will be graduating this December from UH Mānoa with a degree in Molecular Cell Biology. Though she takes classes over at the Mānoa campus, you’ll find Kara working under KCC Microbiology Professor John Berestecky in a lab on KCC’s campus most days of the week. Kara hopes to continue her studies in either graduate-level biology research or by attending medical school. Kara grew up in southern California and decided to attend UH Mānoa in part due to the stories she heard from her father about the islands. He was stationed on O’ahu in the Navy some years back. Over spring break, Kara traveled to Maui and enjoyed her trip immensely — especially the road to Hāna and waterfalls along the way — in spite of receiving a sunburn for the first time.
