Christian is an 11th grade student at Sunset High School who is all about gratitude and taking advantage of the jkl program! “This is not a regular organization, our sponsors really care about us” says Christian. She is closing out her first semester in the jkl program and is already making her mark. She hasn’t missed one session, constantly promotes the program and always challenges herself!

Christian is currently training in jkl for her first 5k race which will take place this winter! Though she is a passionate Hip-Hop and Jazz dancer, preparing for the 5k has sparked a passion for running. Christian shared excitedly, “I feel better, I feel energized”.

Christian has total support from her parents who are glad she has a safe and welcoming place to go after school that challenges her physically and provides amazing opportunities. After high school, Christian would like to pursue a Psychology degree at the University North Texas. In addition to attending college, she has already promised to come back as an alum and volunteer for the jkl program.
