Cristian is also highly involved outside of campus by volunteering as a tutor and achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. His scout project included building over 150 dividers for classrooms in assistance of COVID-19 protocols. After High School, he plans to Major in chemical Engineering with his sights set on a career in aerospace.
