she was indoctrinated by the Left. When she turned 19, she realized that she identified

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!
