Christie grew up in Pennsylvania and North Carolina before ending up in Jersey for the past four years - and now, for a fifth! In June 2017, she graduated from the Civil & Environmental Engineering department and the Urban Studies program. Broadly speaking, she spent her time in college growing in her understanding of and participation in gospel-centered reconciliation, both public and private. More specifically, some formative highlights include dancing for four years with Princeton Bhangra, leading local and global service projects through the Pace Center, writing pieces on Asian-American identity for The Stripes, leading prayer meetings and Bible studies in Manna, and attending the Climate March in DC this past spring! Through it all, Manna has served as a spiritual and social anchor for Christie, and she is very excited to continue learning and growing together with students and staff this year.
