Ashton: What is your name?
Kai: My name is Khai Huynh.
Ashton: Why did you choose OCCC?
Kai: OCCC for me…because I love the community college. It is cheap to go to a community college, but I also love the environment. Because here we can talk to each other and communicate with each other a lot better than at a university. I also study at OU and I think that they have a distance between the students, but here I don’t feel that distant.
Ashton: Why are you attending journalism classes? (I forgot that this was the outside interview so I asked this question)
Khai: I’m not.

Khai: Yes, I also work for a restaurant. I work on the weekends only, so that is all I work.
