Christina “Braveheart” Dixon

Braveheart (aka Christina Dixon) was 23 when she found out she had cancer, and she attended her first FD kayaking camp in August 2010. FD completely changed the way she approached cancer challenges, and challenges in general. Over the past three years, Braveheart has been learning to kayak, surf, climb, and mountaineer because of the First Descents family. Being a part of FD has meant the world to Braveheart, and she wants as many young adults as possible to experience firsthand the same FD love, inspiration, attitude toward adventure, and encouragement to take on challenges that has forever changed her life.Braveheart grew up in North Carolina and is a 2008 graduate of Washington and Lee University. After working in the world of finance for four years, Braveheart is currently a 2015 MBA candidate in the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University***.
