About Colin Goddard & Kristina Anderson

Colin Goddard

Goddard's parents were both international development workers, and so he spent a good deal of his childhood traveling to developing countries with them, including Mogadishu in Somalia, Djakarta in Indonesia and Cairo in Egypt. He started his college career as a physics major at Virginia Tech with aspirations to become an astronaut until he discovered he was colorblind. Before the shooting he was considering foreign service work, and currently he works with the Brady campaign against gun violence.

Kristina Anderson

Anderson was born in the Ukraine and lived there until the age of 8 before moving with family to the U.S. After the April 16th shootings at Virginia Tech, she founded the Koshka Foundation, a non-profit that works toward improving school safety and creating student awareness.
