Early life and education
Christina Bennett Lind was born in Upland, Pennsylvania.
Lind attended public school through grade school and went to a private University, Fordham University.

Her first acting role was Viola in Twelfth Night, with her twin sister, Heather, playing the role of her twin brother, Sebastian.

However, before that, her sisters and her spent countless summers making theatre, dance, and music in a big red barn in Nova Scotia that was a part of her grandparent's property. "We took it very seriously. We all claim it as some of our finest work, and, in seriousness, the start of our lives as artists and art advocates," she explains. Christina's first job on screen was a short film a college friend made on 35mm film, and she played a ventriloquist doll. Her first television job was As the World Turns as a college buddy of one of the regulars, Billy Magnussen; the character's name was Ari.
In 2009 she was the editor for the Short, Comedy, Drama film Love Like a Wheel.
She is currently[when?] organizing an artist's collective, The Neboya Collective, that has appeared in multiple stage productions, and is currently developing multiple independent film projects.
She is currently listed as one of the co-producers for the 2016 post-production film Occupy, Texas and worked the sound department and is a co-producer for the completed upcoming Short, Documentary, Biography film Starring Austin Pendleton.

Lind is interested in placing her support in women's support organizations and LGBTQ organizations. Lind is also interested in supporting self-confidence in girls and women and, specifically, their body images, so she's currently looking for organizations she can work with to encourage self-love and respect. She explains "I am continually floored by how many beautiful women I know who have struggled with this. I want to at least discuss it publicly."
