A Cristina is one of the models of MPL'beauty and that is why our paths crossed. Besides being drop-dead gorgeous and representing perfectly the MPL, a Cristina is an activist and ocean preserver, and spends much of her time fighting to clean up the oceans from the nets and plastics that man leaves behind.
She uses her platform to talk about the preservation of our planet, so we couldn't help but let you know her a little better - inside and out.
Hope you like it! :)
