Intro Bio

Hi, my name is Christine Le. Friends call me Chris, Christina Aguilera, Chrissy Teigen, and who knows what else. However, my life isn’t as grand or eventful as some of these multi-millionaire celebrities. Let me give you a glimpse of my middle-class story. I was born on January 20th, 2008, and my parents had me in the beautiful city of Fountain Valley. Just 8 years before I came out into the world, my parents had my older brother, who is in his last year of college, and we’re now a happy family of 4! All my life I have been living in the Garden Grove/Santa Ana area and I’ve never really moved or traveled that far out of state before. When I was little, I never really found interest in trying out different hobbies besides focusing on my studies. Still, with the pandemic extending its stay longer than I anticipated, I eventually fell into a severe state of boredom. As I would be scrolling through social media, I noticed a lot of reading recommendations and people crocheting stuffed animals or different articles of clothing. I decided to try these out for myself and instantly fell in love. Settling down into a warm, fuzzy pile of blankets with a sweet romance book, or a handful of yarn never fails to spread a feeling of comfort and serotonin through my body. These hobbies truly help pass the time when I fall into a whirlpool of stress and boredom. Since I had no choice but to be born in the late 2000s, I am now finally beginning high school as a freshman. Starting new here at Santiago was a pivotal moment in my life because I had to adjust to new surroundings and make new friends, seeing as all of my other friends attended different high schools. At first, I dreaded waking up every morning to go to school because the thought of being alone and knowing no one at Santiago made me feel glum. However, after getting through the first week of school, I saw how great the staff and students were and it lessened the weight that held down my heart. Hopefully, my time here at Santiago can push my potential and eventually lead me to achieve my future goals, such as building an idea of what colleges, majors, or career paths I want to pursue. Everyone always asks me, “Do you have any plans after high school?” or “What career are you planning to choose?”, but it’s all so overwhelming to think about, knowing that senior year is already 3 years away from now. I have little to no idea of what I want to do, but I hope to land myself a position in the business or fashion industry. Getting to work with luxury brands such as Dior, Prada, Saint Laurent, etc. has been a dream of mine for the past couple of years now. Seeing some of my favorite celebrities and idols become ambassadors for these brands further encourages me to strive toward my big dream. While I hope to envision myself working hard as a businesswoman 10-15 years from now, I also would like to travel the world after earning and saving up a hefty amount of money. This may seem silly for a freshman to think about, but I plan on moving away to a secluded and peaceful area after my retirement. There, I can wake up every morning in my cozy little cottage, sipping a steaming mug of coffee, while watching the beautiful sunrise to indicate a fresh start to the day. It might seem ridiculous now, but who knows, I could be a renowned businesswoman who is enjoying the rest of her life in France or Italy decades from now. Thank you for tuning in to my story, and I look forward to working with and for Santiago’s Purple Press! I hope to learn new skills in Journalism, and I want to contribute to the school’s newspaper by publishing interesting stories and factual articles for all Cavs to read, and I wish to receive feedback that could help me improve!
