Peer Health Educator

Hello! I am Cristian(He/Him). I am an undergraduate studying Psychology. After graduation, I hope to get into medical school to continue learning about health and our brain! As a transfer student/commuter with a “nontraditional” student story, I understand that everyone’s paths are different, and that there is no one single path to success. We all have our own story to tell and are on a journey to continue adding to it. I believe we all have the amazing ability to adapt, learn and excel in environments if given the right tools. As a PHE, I will aim to promote well-being and always strive to deliver evidence-based tools to help Huskies find their path at UW. After completing my first quarter at UW, I will say I definitely felt nervous being at such a massive campus. However, I learned that having grace, honesty, and being authentic will get you far when it comes to building relationships with other students and professors. Never underestimate what truth and compassion can do for others. My favorite people to spend time with are my life-long friends, family, and my two German Shepherds back home! I also enjoy runs, exploring new cafes, and going to the gym. Some TV shows I watch are House M.D. and Modern Family.
