Christian Nunez was born and raised in White Plains, NY. He grew up on Ferris Ave which happens to have played a major part in his development and success. Christian went on to graduate from White Plains High school in 2009 and was part of the varsity basketball team for 2.5 years. He went on to play basketball at Farmingdale State College, helping lead his team to a Skyline Conference Championship in 2012 and graduated with a Bachelors in Sports Management.
Upon graduation, he has been giving back to the community in many ways. He worked as a teacher assistant for the SAIL program and as a freshman basketball coach at the White Plains High School for about 5 years. He has helped mentor the youth in White Plains and served as a great role model. His continued support and attention have helped the White Plains community.
The Youth Bureau was a safe haven for Christian; it was a place where he could go to with his friends and play the game he loved. The Youth Bureau also granted him the opportunities to find jobs, enhance his academics, and gain the knowledge and support needed to become a leader.
Currently, Christian Nunez resides in St. Louis, Missouri. He is a Graduate Assistant on the Men’s Basketball team at Saint Louis University and will be graduating next year with a Masters in Higher Education Administration in Student Personnel. He hopes to one day work his way up and become a head coach at a Division 1 school one day, but in the meantime, he will continue to work and set an example for the younger generations to follow.
