For Christina, stardom hasn't shielded her from her true self. The former waitress from Philly had been juggling 3 jobs for 9 years when her best friend had her write down her dreams in a letter to the universe, which led to a record deal practically the next day. While Christina’s overnight success may be fit for a fairytale, her true treasures are revealed in the struggles that continued after her newfound success -- like learning to cope with debilitating stage fright, getting sober and learning to be single after ending an unhealthy relationship. By confronting the darkest parts of herself, Christina harnesses her power to open up spiritually. "Do I have difficulty feeling that I’m beautiful? Yeah, but I love myself in all different ways too. I’m allowing myself to have this journey and keep trying and being brave, and that translates to love for me.”
Filmed in 2016 and previously hosted exclusively on Fullscreen’s subscription platform, this fall we are thrilled to re-release eight episodes of The What’s Underneath Project on our YouTube channel, free and accessible to all.
