"Cristina Deutsch is vibrant, creative, hard working, personable and kind. I had the privilege of working with her because she applied for and received an arts grant from the PCCHC.   

The multifaceted program she directed with the funding was enormously successful and 

among the best that I evaluated that year."

~ Susan Balik, Associate Director, Cultural Affairs at Passaic County Community College
