This week I met one of my classmates named Kasi Gibo. The first thing I noticed about her is that I really loved her running shoes (because Nike is my favorite she brand ha!). After talking to her for a while, I discovered that she ran track and cross country in high school, which is something I did in high school too! But unlike me, she ran more of the long distance like the 800 m, 1 mile, and 2 miles, which are events that I would dread to run. She currently lives in Cypress and is commuting to CSULB (it takes around 10 to 15 minutes to drive). She was so excited to say that it was her senior year and that she’s graduating this year. I asked her if she felt a bittersweet feeling, but she told me she just felt ‘sweet’! Although she is a communication major, she wants to pursue a career in cosmetology. She was in beauty school as a sophmore and currently works for Nordstrom, under a beauty supply brand called Lau Mercie. I wasn’t too familiar with the name because I barely use make up and have no idea how to even use something as simple as eye shadow. Even though we had a coupe things uncommon, we definitely shared something that not a lot of people can say: we’re both Japanese! She’s the youngest of three sisters. Her family’s really excited to see her graduate, and I’m also excited to see one more senior graduating from an amazing school. I wish Kasi good luck for her future endeavors!
