    Christine is 23 years old and from Manila, the Philippines. She majored in Business Management and minored in Chinese Studies at the Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines, where she graduated magna cum laude. Her involvement with the local government as a Youth Council Chairperson and with various sector-based organizations exposed her to the Philippines’ social realities at a young age, leading her to co-found the first campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity Philippines, as well as an award-winning social enterprise providing alternative livelihood for women through fashion. While working full-time as general manager of a Hong Kong-based international beverage chain in the Philippines, Christine also worked for Ashoka Philippines and helped establish a non-profit seeking to restructure the agricultural model for farmers in rural indigenous communities. As a Yenching Scholar, Christine will pursue Economics and Management as her research area. She hopes to gain a deeper understanding of social entrepreneurship, private philanthropy and volunteerism in China.
