hello again

My name is cristina but I’m most commonly known as cristinona.

I was born and raised in Guatemala City, Guatemala. During every summer from age 11 to 18, I attended summer camps and programs where I got to meet people from all corners of the globe–expanding my global perspective. At age 18, I went to Boston, MA to study Business Management and Entrepreneurship in Babson College. During my Junior year of college, I took a leave of absence from my school to attend a study abroad program called Semester at Sea where I got the opportunity to cross the pacific and Indian ocean by ship and visit several countries in Asia and Africa. When I came back from my study abroad, I got diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Fueled by my mission to heal myself and my curiosity to learn new things, I enrolled in IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition) where I graduated as a Holistic Health Coach. Shortly after, I endured an accident where I fractured a vertebrae in my spine–leaving me in bed rest for six weeks and feeling lost within myself for months. My intuition had been telling me clearly to start writing for years, and I couldn’t continue to ignore it. On August 2021, I turned my IG profile from private to public and began publishing the stories and experiences within my soul. In October, I started offering my college counseling services and in November, I gave my first virtual manifestation workshop. In less than two years, my company, ‘cristinona,’ grew to become a 6-figure business–a goal I had visualized with passion and confidence. 


Today, I have made it my mission to empower others–from college students to driven women–to execute on their dreams and manifest a life that sets their soul on fire: mind, body, and soul. 

my personal manifesto:


I am willing to challenge, question, and unlearn my beliefs, and write new ones that align with my true essence…in order to be a living example of the life i dream: having radical acceptance to what its, embodying authentic wellness, and channeling my light into the world in order to catalyze inspiration and transformation.
