Hi everyone! My name is Khristian Erich, and I am currently a senior at MIT majoring in mathematics and aspire to become a doctor. I also conduct research at the Koch Institute investigating intestinal disease and regeneration (oh the irony...). In addition, I'm a concert pianist and organist, which has been incredibly wonderful. I've been battling with UC since my junior year in high school. Though it's been a challenge, I've become a stronger person as a result.
I am a late-comer to the CCFA, but my hope is to become more involved. Please feel free to reach out. I'd love to hear from you!
