Vote for Kristina!

Kristina Whalen is an Entertainment Management major at the University of Central Florida Rosen College of Hospitality Management. Upon graduation, she plans to obtain her Master’s Degree in Creative Arts and Design.

In 2018, Kristina sought refuge at a local domestic violence shelter after her relationship turned physically abusive. Since then, Kristina has used this negative experience as an opportunity to educate her community about dating violence, provide resources to those in need and share easily accessible information through her website, blog and social media platforms, @LoveShouldntHurtFL.

Kristina was previously the keynote speaker for a local domestic violence shelter and was even nominated by her professor to compete in her college’s annual speech competition. Her original speech, Love Shouldn’t Hurt, was awarded fourth overall place and she hopes to continue to educate her peers and community about the dating violence epidemic.
