Christina was born on November 15, 1975 in Seoul, Korea. She came to the United States with her parents at the age of four. As a child, Christina had a great affection for her grandfather and wanted to research Alzheimer’s to cure his disease “when she grew up”. After spending her earlier years at Bassett Elementary school, Christina attended Lee Burneson Middle School where she began her band career as a member of the clarinet section. During her high school years, her musical career flourished as she played the mellophone for the marching band, clarinet for the concert band, and percussion for the jazz band. After receiving her diploma from Westlake High School in 1994, Christina became a Wolverine at the University of Michigan. She was very involved with the Asian Organization on campus as an officer of the Asian American Association, Korean Students Association, and an active member of the United Asian Associations Organization. Also, Christina’s love for children motivated her to successfully organize the annual cultural program for adopted Korean children and work as a teacher at Jack and Jill Daycare Center throughout her college years. In 1998, Christina received her B.A. in Psychology from the university of Michigan and decided to work towards a double Masters in History and Education from Eastern Michigan University. After attending classes year-round, Christina broke from the monotony and headed towards the Big Apple where she began working for the human Resources Department of Cantor Fitzgerald Securities. On September 11, 2001, Christina was on the 104th floor of the World Trade Center starting another day at work…when she was taken from us. We love you Christina.
