Christina Lorenzo

Christina found that studying in Moscow for a semester presented some interesting challenges—both inside and outside the classroom. Her 15 weeks at the prestigious Mathematics in Moscow program at the Independent University of Moscow tested her abilities. The graduate-level courses were taught in English, but covered some tough lessons. “It was very difficult but worth it because they pushed us to a new level.”

As a Lederman Scholar, Christina enrolled at North Central during her years at Neuqua Valley High School for additional math classes and to accumulate college credits. Once on campus, she worked closely with professors on their research and presented at conferences. She received an honorable mention in the Barry M. Goldwater National Scholarship program, a high achievement in the sciences.

Christina is currently earning a doctorate in mathematics at Purdue University.
