Hi, I’m Kristina! I graduated from the University of North Texas with a B.A. in general studies with concentrations in women’s studies, sociology, and music. I then went on to receive my M.A. in interdisciplinary studies with concentrations in women’s studies and sociology, also from UNT. During my graduate studies, I had the privilege of studying abroad in Tunisia. While I was in Tunisia, I was able to learn and see the social, economic, and political adversities and triumphs of Tunisian women of all socio-economic statuses.
When I first heard about Human Rights Initiative a few years ago, I was instantly compelled by their mission. I have always been captivated by the stories of immigrants and their individual struggles, so I immediately felt a connection to HRI and the way the organization advocates for victims of human rights abuses.
I like to volunteer, attend concerts, read, and spend time with family and friends. Since I have a background in music, I like to sing and play instruments, such as the piano and ukulele. I also enjoy traveling…especially road trips!
