Christian began his journey toward the practice of law long before law school. Even during his days at Notre Dame Preparatory (NDP), he felt enlightened by his Social Justice class, which opened his eyes to the prejudice, discrimination, and unfair treatment that still exists in the world today. The more he learned, the more passionate he became about advocating for others and helping them seek the justice they deserve. Christian left NDP with a sense of social and academic confidence, feeling prepared for whatever life had in store.

As he continued on to college, his interest in law continued to be peaked by his Legal Environment of Business class, as well as his political science classes. He credits a huge part of his college success to Building Bridges and the mentorship he was provided through the program. “Building Bridges put me in touch with mentors and helped me as I entered this next stage of life and the professional world. The advocates gave me a great example of why it is important to set an example for those that come behind me—building a bridge. Paul Housey had and still has a huge impact on my life.
