Christina Chenault Shares her Experience with Mental Health as a College Athlete
Christina Chenault & Andrew Cooper sit down on campus at UCLA to share her story, destigmatize mental health, and address the misconceptions of being a college athlete. Christina is a visionary entrepreneur unafraid to stand up for what is right, especially for those who need it most. While competing as a Division I college athlete, studying both psychology and African-American studies, Christina founded Top Five Media to reclaim the narrative of college sports. She also founded the UCLA undergraduate Sports Business Association to foster a community of students interested in pursuing a career in the sports industry. Christina hopes to leverage her passion for storytelling to create unity, social change, and equity through the world of sport.
“It just felt like no one was listening or no one cared. All the blame was always on us. If we weren’t performing well, it’s a ‘you issue’. If you’re injured, it’s a ‘you issue’. If you have anxiety now, that’s a ‘you issue’. None if it was looking at the environment that’s causing all of these things”Christina Chenault on the the stigma of Mental Health in College Sports
