Christina describes Baltimore as “the city of neighborhoods.” With over 200 neighborhoods, every block provides endless opportunities to gain new experiences. When she was growing up in Baltimore, she couldn’t wait to get out, but as an adult, Christina has a newfound appreciation and love for her hometown. She wants to ensure she leaves a brighter future for her children and to teach them that they can always find a way to be a part of the solution. Christina is passionate about fighting Baltimore’s history of hyper-segregation, an issue that is still so prevalent in the city.
Christina chose to attend the University of Baltimore because the majority of their alumni continue to work in Baltimore City and actively support current UB students. She says the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore is the only school in Maryland dedicated to public services, which gives her the space to grow her passion and surround herself with likeminded people to make Baltimore a more hopeful place.
