Hometown: Toronto, ON
Occupation: Healthcare Administration and part-time Hospitality
Christina is a charismatic, passionate and ambitious young woman, with a zest for life. She was born in Toronto, raised in the greater Toronto area and now currently resides Downtown, Toronto. Christina graduated with Honours from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, located in Oshawa, Ontario, with her Bachelors in Human Health Science and a minor in business entrepreneurship. Currently, she is working in healthcare administration at a downtown hospital as a medical screener, and enjoys bartending on the weekends. Towards the completion of her degree, she also embarked on her very first business venture and established her own fitness brand, BodiedByTina. Fitness and health has always been one of her greatest passions, and it was only a matter of time before she channeled this passion into something profitable. Through her business she has the pleasure of creating content for her fitness page and channel, creating customized programs and plans for clients and friends, and personal training. Christina is also no rookie to pageantry, as she competed and placed 1st runner up in the Miss West Indian Canadian pageant in 2018.
In spite of all of her various endeavours and passions, Christina’s primary career aspiration has always been to become a board-certified Dermatologist. Christina had quite an early exposure to the field of dermatology, as she began to struggle with her skin very early on in life. This eventually led to her keen interest in all abnormalities of the largest organ of the body, the skin. Throughout her career, she has hopes of exploring different areas of research including skin cancer, incidences of skin cancer in minority & marginalized populations as well as climate change and how it may affect our health in the future on the surface level. Although she is graduated, Christina is currently taking the time to prepare for her MCAT exam, work in a healthcare setting and gain valuable patient experience, and is also working on a research study focused on lung cancer screening with a team from Women’s College Hospital and UofT. When her head isn’t tucked away in the books or working, you can either find Christina at the gym weight training, rollerblading along Toronto’s gorgeous lakeshore, or somewhere comfy editing YouTube videos for her channel. Christina prides herself on presenting to the world a well-rounded and wholesome version of herself and hopes to inspire others by being an exemplary role model for women everywhere.
