Christine is a doctoral candidate in the department of Political Science at UCLA. At UCLA, Christine is a Eugene V.

Her dissertation examines the relationship between poverty, political efficacy, and political participation across place and type. In addition to her academic work, she enjoys reading on the beach, arts and crafts and going to Target with her mom.  While Christine is eager to become a college professor, she is the happiest when given the chance to mentor young African American women to become more interested and creative in participating in politics or explaining politics to her grandmother.
