Quotes from nominator(s):
"The number of folks within the APIDA community that she has touched is truly amazing. Her warmth and genuine concern, coupled with her smile, places folks at ease immediately. Her service as one of the co-chairs of the APIKC previously was a demonstration of inclusiveness, welcoming, and an amazing ohana spirit that is absolutely contagious to all those around her."
"Christine has and continues to be the epitome of what it means to be a mentor. Not only does she lift up underrepresented and underserved communities, she continues to be a wonderful mentor and leader to the UH & NASPA community. Many students and NUFPS have benefited from her contributions to the community and the University of Hawaii. She is a wonderful advocate for students, not just in Hawaii but across the nation."
"She takes the necessary time to get to genuinely know individuals and things that are important for them. She takes into account the ways in which every person can contribute and uses their strength to empower them to reach their goals. She uses her connections to make sure that students, faculty and staff have the support and resources they need to succeed. She encourages students and staff to get involved with NASPA as to create a deeper understanding of student affairs."
