Welcome one of our new Pioneers, Akemi Ohara! She is a freshman pre-nursing student from Folsom, California., and dreams of being an ER triage nurse. Akemi decided to join PUC because of the beautiful campus and the holistic approach to learning.
What is your dream job?
My dream job is to become an ER triage nurse. I love the quick decision, adrenaline-rushing, out-of-the-box thinking required for this kind of environment.
How does that compare to what you wanted to be when you were young?
From a very young age, I wanted to become a nurse, just like my mother, but I recently grew interested in the Emergency Room.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place in the world is anywhere with my family. My family is my support and comfort when I am feeling down. I also love the mountains 🙂
If you had to be trapped in a movie for a day, what movie would you choose?
I would choose Moana! I love the ocean, and I love adventure. She is so connected to nature and how cool would it be to talk to animals!
What is something you’re passionate about?
I am passionate about learning and growing. You learn something new every day!
Recommend a place to go in the Bay Area on a weekend.
Japan Town!! If you love Asian cuisine and Daiso, I highly recommend checking it out. There is so much to do and see.
