Hi! My name is Christina. I may seem shy at first, but once you get to know me, you’ll
see that I like to bring others joy and that I’m a giving person. If I’m not seen
with my friends and family, then I am most likely learning a new language! I hope
to make a difference in our community and the world, especially surrounding immigration,
gender justice, racial justice, and environmentalism. Being a child of immigrant parents
has fueled my interests in immigration and I am passionate about racial and gender
justice as an Asian-American woman. Additionally, when I’m free, I love doing art,
specifically digital illustrations, painting, and photography!
