LinkedIn: Christine Maida
Christine is an aerospace engineering and entrepreneurship student at Saint Louis University. She is equally passionate about engineering and business and has found many ways to get involved in activities on campus that have exposed her to both fields. She has served as the Vice President and project manager for SLU's experimental aircraft laboratory and has worked on a variety of other technical design teams. She is an intern for the Chafeitz Center for Entrepreneurship and has grown to know the St. Louis entrepreneurial scene very well.
As a UIF Christine has co-taught over 350 students rapid ideation strategy with her fellow UIF. She also organizes innovation events every semester that aim to connect the engineering and business schools on her campus with entrepreneurial firms native to the St. Louis area. Most recently, she has organized a cardboard boat racing event and a lego car drag race both sponsored by native St. Louis entrepreneurs!
When she has down time, Christine enjoys cooking, watching movies, listening to music, and getting outdoors! It is not uncommon to find her enjoying Forest Park with friends, catching the latest free concert in the city, or trying out new recipes!
