Emma and Christopher Beavers ’10 are wholehearted believers in the magic of Disney. Avid fans, the couple travels to Disney Parks several times annually to experience the atmosphere that is known worldwide as the place “where dreams come true.”
“Disney’s commitment to excellence is what continually draws us back,” Christopher said. “In a way, it reminds me of Texas A&M University. Both places create magic.”
Hailing from Corpus Christi, Texas, Christopher grew up in a diehard Aggie family and experienced the power of the Aggie Spirit by attending football games in Kyle Field. Although he was immersed in Texas A&M’s culture, his path to becoming an Aggie was different than most.
For his undergraduate education, Christopher attended Harvard University to study economics, a decision that can be traced back to his childhood fascination with the stock market and the inner workings of businesses. At Harvard, he earned academic honors and took a number of music courses so he could foster his love for classical piano, a hobby he continues today.
“Harvard is designed for you to succeed,” Christopher said. “My time there gave me a broader view of the world and of how finance can be directed to social good.”
