“The more you give, the more you will receive” – that’s the philosophy that Christina stands by.
Christina completed her undergraduate degree in Health Studies and is a recent graduate from the Master of Public Health (’16) program in the School of Public Health and Health Systems. She is currently working towards her degree in Law from the University of Calgary and dedicates her time and energy to growing FullSoul Canada, a social enterprise she co-founded to equip hospitals in developing countries with medical delivery kits. Working with local partners, FullSoul Canada has already delivered medical kits to three hospitals in Uganda. Each kit has the power to deliver up to three babies per day, 365 days of the year, for approximately 20 years.
Active in the community, Christina frequently speaks at conferences to motivate youth and share the FullSoul story. She is an avid volunteer and member of the Calgary Rotaract Club. After battling childhood cancer in 2009, Christina started mentoring children in the Canadian Childhood Cancer Foundation, an activity she carries on to this day.
Christina is the recipient of several honours and awards, including the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (2010), AHS Co-op Student of the Year (2011), the YMCA International Peace Medallion (2013), and the AHS Young Alumni Award (2015). She actively promotes entrepreneurship and health innovation among Waterloo students and alumni, and her compassion continues to inspire others to strive for a better world, country, and health care community. This summer, Christina will be working for the United Nations International Diplomacy Program in Thailand.
