Growing up in San Diego and having recently graduated from Torrey Pines High School, Christian plans to enter Colgate University in the fall of 2024 with concentrations in economics, computer science, and political science. Throughout his high school career, his commitment to public service has grown. Christian has led initiatives at local nonprofits that address discrepancies in healthcare, education, and voter turnout within San Diego’s AANHPI communities. In addition, he interned at a company focused on improving accessibility in clinical trials and also with a local criminal defense attorney, experiences that allowed him to witness the impacts of public policy on California’s health and justice systems.
Currently, Christian is serving as an intern in the office of Congressman Scott Peters, representing his home district—California’s 50th. In tandem with his role in YLAC, Christian seeks to broaden his understanding of California’s policy issues and contribute to tangible solutions for constituents. In his free time, Christian is likely snowboarding, surfing, or at the gym.
