High School: St. Augustine
College: San Diego State University
To Christian Onwuka, following is not an option. A powerful orator with an animated sense of humor, Christian thrives as a community relations expert at St. Augustine High School, a mentor at church and through the Boys and Girls Club and is often called on as a youth voice for the San Diego NAACP. His constant hype-energy creates an environment of action–motivating and supporting his peers in their journey to becoming more dedicated scholars, local do-ers and global thinkers. A true role model, Christian takes his acute awareness of how the smallest behaviors create influence, and seeks to positively shape the world around him. With a deep appreciation for his roots, Christian pours his heart into his local community, a community for which he will unquestionably be a powerful advocate as he continues his journey at San Diego State University.
