From the UA Alumni magazine article: 

THE CLASS OF 2008 REMEMBERS THE JOURNEY, Summer 2018 Edition

University of Arizona alumni are full of stories.  Some of them bring laughter, like cramming for tests in a malodorous basement.  Some memories go deeper:  A child’s life saved, a chance to provide scholarships in honor of a family member who passed away. Meet 10 graduates who have 10 years of perspective as UA alumni.  They are full not only of stories but also of determination to support the university and give today’s students a chance to develop their own UA memories.

Christina’s Responses

Ah, the Memories:  My study partner and I liked the basement of the law library, which no longer exists.  It was a dark and smelly dungeon, but it was our favorite place because it was so quiet.

On Arizona Assurance:  My husband, Abraham Wu, and I went to a reception and met two students who are directly impacted by our gifts.  I received scholarships during my undergraduate and law school years, and I’m grateful to those who laid the path for me to get a degree and go to law school.  I want to do the same for others.

A Continuance:  Professor of Practice Greg Gadarian was my instructor, and he was also a practitioner who brought real examples into the classroom.  He’s a colleague and mentor now; I still ask him for advice.

Supporting Arizona Public Media: It’s unbiased news that’s accessible to all. Supporting education in our community is important to us.
