My name is Kim Spenser and I am a peer mentor here at Kaiao. I was born and raised here on Maui. This is currently my 6th semester here at the Maui college and my intended major is nursing. I also intend on working on an associate’s degree in natural science biological concentration. I previously attended Windward Community College for a semester and certification in their nurse’s aid program. As a peer mentor, I am here to help motivate and guide you throughout your academic pathway, which is especially beneficial for your first year of college experiences. I feel that it is crucially important as a first year student to become familiar with the campus and all the various campus resources that are offered here to help us out as college students. It is my obligation, as your mentor, to be there to help you in any type of academic or personal requisite and to provide any type of information that I can acquire that you may need or want.
