Since May, Christian has reported on the 2022 primary elections; middle schoolers protesting gun violence; city council plans on funding city projects; and the fire on the Pleasanton Ridge.

A San Jose native who studied at San Jose State and De Anza College, Christian began writing for school newspapers in 2017.
