Dr. Christiana Chamon Garcia was raised in Houston where she was indoctrinated by the Left. When she turned 19, she realized that she identified as a Libertarian. She became active in the LP after the 2020 election when she got tired of being the only objective person in every single room and decided to network with other Libertarians. Christiana received her BSEE from UH, her MSEE from TAMU, and her Ph.D. from TAMU in 2021. She is very excited to serve as the Vice Chair of LP Brazos County, and she looks forward to joining you in plotting to take over the world and leave you alone!
