Senior Profile: Cole Kawana

In sixth grade, USC Viterbi senior Cole Kawana interviewed his great-uncle for a school project. The topic: surviving the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

He stepped on a rusty nail the day before the bombing. That small misfortune saved his life.

This interview was archived in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in Japan. The lessons from his great-uncle — and three of his grandparents and great grandparents, all of whom were in internment camps in World War II — however, remain indelibly a part of Kawana’s legacy.

One of these lessons: paying it forward.

Read about Kawana, his incredible memories at USC and what's next in his adventures of engineering, storytelling, rock climbing and giving back.
