Christina is an extremely active member of her community and has contributed to a number of charities and non-profit organizations. As someone who has endured the death of a loved one herself, she set up ‘Evermore’ with the help of her therapist friends Michele and Jack. The non-profit initiative has been dubbed “a dinner party for anyone who is trying to cope and move on after losing a loved one” by people associated with the organization. They declared, “This is not a pity party by any means. It is simply a chance to meet and identify with others who have been faced with similar experiences.”
Christina has also been associated with ‘The Cristian Rivera Foundation,’ a non-profit organization devoted to finding a cure for pontine glioma, an extremely aggressive and hard-to-treat brain tumor usually found at the base of the brain. The organization is named after Cristian Rivera, who died at the age of 6, after being diagnosed with the same form of tumor at the age of 4. Christina and others involved with the foundation are working tirelessly so that no other family has to experience the same trauma and suffering that Cristian’s family had to endure.
Christina is also part of ‘Save the Children Federation,’ a community that gives importance to the health and happiness of children.
Christiana has worked with ‘My Stuff Bags Foundation’ and the ‘American Refugee Committee,’ too. The former works with abused children, while the latter is an international non-profit, non-sectarian initiative that has been providing humanitarian assistance and training to millions of beneficiaries for the past 40 years.
Photography & Travel
Christina is an avid traveller and photographer. She often takes breaks from her day-to-day activities and travels with her husband and daughters. Over the years, she has spent holidays in places such as ‘Disney World,’ Canada, and Italy.
In 2017, she and Georgia visited ‘Disney World’ to celebrate her third birthday. Her daughter had a lot of fun frolicking around the park, enjoying the rides, and meeting her favourite ‘Disney’ characters, including ‘Mickey’ and ‘Minnie’ and a number of ‘Disney’ princesses.
As Halifax is her hometown, she often takes her family there to have a quieter time, away from the world of glamor. She spends hours enjoying the scenic beauty of the place and lazing by the tranquil waters.
During their vacation in Italy, Christiana and her family visited Florence, Rome, the Vatican, Amalfi, Isle of Capri, Venice, and Milan. According to Christiana, she loves everything about the country. They enjoyed the breathtaking views, the flavorful cuisine, and the fascinating cultural events and festivals that the country had to offer. She also developed an interest in the country’s long and intricate history and unique architecture.
Christiana posts photographs and videos of her friends and family and also of her vacations on her ‘Instagram’ account on a regular basis. She has also uploaded pictures with some of the greatest stars of Hollywood, such as Bill Murray, Robert De Niro, and the late Robin Williams.
