Recognizing the importance of active participation in community service he has become a driving force for positive change in the city. His commitment to effecting change, one step at a time, underscores his belief in personal accountability and responsibility.

A proud alumnus of California State University San Bernardino, Christopher holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science. His dedication to education and learning is evident in his ongoing pursuit of knowledge. Currently enrolled at The Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Christopher is working towards a Public Leadership Credential.

In the wake of the pandemic, Christopher, fueled by a desire to contribute to a more equitable and sustainable city, realized the need to elevate his community involvement. As a member of the Tarzana Neighborhood Council, he actively engages in local governance, shaping policies and initiatives that directly impact the community he calls home.

Christopher's passion extends beyond his immediate community involvement. He serves as the Chair of the Neighborhood Council Sustainability Alliance, Treasurer for Feel The Bern SFV (Bernie Sanders Democratic Club), and is a dedicated member of the California Biodiversity Working Group. These roles showcase his commitment to broader issues of sustainability, social justice, and biodiversity.

In his personal life, Christopher is deeply committed to his family. A loving husband to Maggie Nguyen and a proud father to daughters Athena and Artemis, family values are at the core of his identity. The Ahuja family faced a challenging time when Artemis fell ill at just six weeks old, weeks before the onset of the Covid pandemic. This trying period led Christopher to rediscover his faith with the Catholic Church, finding solace and support that played a crucial role in Artemis's full recovery.

Beyond his community and family commitments, Christopher finds joy and fulfillment in the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Combat Submission Wrestling. His multifaceted engagement in education, community service, family life, and personal interests paints a picture of a well-rounded individual dedicated to making a positive impact at various levels of society.
