2013 Rowe Scholar: Christina Jiang

Christina Jiang
Christina Jiang (Freshman)

Originally from New York, NY, Christina Jiang was raised in Hamden, CT where she graduated from Sacred Heart Academy as her class’s valedictorian. While a high school student, Christina was a regular participant in Connecticut science fairs and school mission trips. The importance of community service is one of the reasons why she’s entering UConn as a molecular and cell biology major with an interest in pre-med and nutritional sciences. The other catalyst in Christina’s career decision-making was her membership in Healthy Adventures at Yale-New Haven Hospital, which allowed her to tour the hospital and learn about different branches of the medical field.
