A quick intro from Cristina
Hey ya’ll! I’m super excited to be the Chicago soberIRL local lead and to explore all the awesome things there are to do in this amazing city. My sobriety date is February 3rd, 2020 and having found most of my sober community via zoom and IG, I’m ready to bring these friendships into the real world, while also making new ones. Music and photography are a huge part of my life; pre-pandemic I spent some nights as a concert photographer and during the last few months I’ve been working on a youtube series that highlights bands fronted by BIPOC and queer folks. I’m into wrestling (Nia Jaxx is my queen), going on super long walks, street art, and riding around the city on my Super73. I grew up knowing Chicago as a big drinking city, so I’m hyped to help lead the charge on a more active and fun sober community!
