She was formally Miss Philadelphia 1999 in the Miss America Scholarship organization and the first Hispanic to ever hold the title. In 1999, she competed in the Miss Pennsylvania Pageant, which is the official preliminary to the Miss America Scholarship Organization, and was selected to be Top Ten Semifinalist and won over $14,000 in educational scholarships. Cristina also won the Overall Community Service Award for her role as a well known public official for performing arts education in the community and because of her strong efforts in promoting her platform - ACE: Arts Cultural Enrichment Programs for the Learning Disabled. The clients she coaches today have won or placed in the top tier all of their pageant competitions.
