Abuse and homelessness survivor, youth advocate, and author of CinderGirl
Empowering others with her inspiring life story, Christina Meredith survived sexual, mental
and emotional abuse, incest, trauma, aging out of foster care, poverty and homelessness to
forge a life committed to helping others. Through strong faith and hard work, she went on to
become Miss California, enroll in college, found her own nonprofit foundation, and pursue the path to becoming a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army.
Her book, CinderGirl: My Journey out of the Ashes to a Life of Hope is
now under development to become a major motion picture.
Christina's story celebrates the transformative power of education,
and the potential within all of us to triumph over adversity.
