Christian, 21, served as Vice-Chair of the Undergraduate Senate at UNC, where he helped lead the effort that led to the removal of the Confederate Monument on campus. He also championed an initiative to create a Latinx Center at the university for Hispanic students, authoring and securing the passage of a student government resolution for the establishment of the center. The Board of Trustees approved creation of the center in 2018. A young man from a humble background, mentors and mentorship are important to him. He wants to use his Master in International Relations at IE to gain a more nuanced understanding of the intersection of public, private and nonprofit approaches to problem-solving that will help advance a career in corporate responsibility, policy and government. Soft-spoken, enthusiastic and thrilled at the opportunity offered by the Eisenhower Global Scholars Program, Christian worked as a Fellow at DLA Piper in Chicago and as a communications intern at Precision Strategies, a consultant firm in Washington, D.C. He wants to focus on the structural inequalities in health care in the United States that have resulted in the disproportionately high death tolls for African-Americans, Hispanics and other minorities from the Covid-19 pandemic. Gaining knowledge “in international organization and business as well as politics….will equip me to handle the most pressing socio-legal concerns of the 21st Century,” he wrote in his application.
