Christina Sturgeon

Christina Sturgeon was a Development Fellow at RespectAbility. She was thrilled to spread the mission of RespectAbility to empower people with disabilities to achieve the American Dream. Having grown up with an older sister with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Sturgeon found this clear passion at a young age.

During her Fellowship, Sturgeon thoroughly enjoyed pitching RespectAbility’s work on criminal justice reform to staffers on Capitol Hill. In addition, she assisted with research and writing of LOIs and proposals to foundations as well as building lists.

Sturgeon is a rising junior at Furman University where she is majoring in Philosophy. At Furman, Sturgeon started a program to foster intergenerational relationships between the university and a local retirement center, founded and is president of the college’s Best Buddies chapter, and led the Dance Marathon morale committee for the past two years. A self-described “theater kid,” she thrives on the stage acting, singing and dancing.
