This week I met Kari Maehara who is also a first year at CSULB. She is also a local, graduating from Los Alamitos High School, she played basketball and decided to dorm. By dorming, she left behind her two dogs and family back at home. She shared that on her free time she enjoys to draw, travel, and run. She loves the summer, but it’s necessarily the biggest fan of the heat waves that have been hitting school lately. Yet, she is getting involved in school and recently joined a sorority. Kari is spending her first year taking many General Education courses as an undeclared student. It was nice to meet her this week.
