Christine Lee is a graduate of Duke University, where she studied public policy, Asian studies, and history; and was heavily involved in the formation of Duke's Asian American studies program. Born in Memphis, Tenn., Christine is especially interested in understanding and organizing against the many barriers that inhibit folks from seeing themselves and others in the image of God. This has manifested itself in an interest in API/A (Asian Pacific Islander/ American) issues, postcolonial theology, and labor and immigration histories.
She is also passionate about facilitating spaces for Asian American Southerners to continue to develop the growing narrative of what it means to be Asian in the South, channeling much of this energy into her position as director of outreach for the East Coast Asian American Student Union (ECAASU). Christine loves coffee and plants. In her free time, she likes to bake, video chat with her dog, and update her Goodreads account. Her favorite books are A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki and Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler.
