Hi, my name is Kira Ogoshi and I graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a B.A. in Biology in 2020. While in college, I was a member of the volleyball team and obtained my certification as an EMT. I then began volunteering as an EMT in the suburbs of Philadelphia and during my breaks I would return home to Hawaii to volunteer at local hospitals and senior living facilities. Upon graduating from college, I started working as a medical assistant at a private primary care office. In my free time, I like to travel, workout, and keep in touch with friends and family in Hawaii.
