Brianna strongly believes that the most effective leadership is through service, getting to know people on a profound level and recognizing humanity in everyone. Poetry for Brianna is a tool to hold a mirror to society, and to herself, to show not what is right or wrong, but what is - and let the people determine what they feel are injustices. Poetry is also a medicine for whenever her soul hurts and needs to heal, or whenever she wishes to heal others. Currently, she works at IH as a creative data analyst, primarily working in Python to automate the data infrastructure. She volunteers as a Python Lead for Women Who Code DC to empower women in the tech industry, and as a Tech Instructor for Black Girls Code to inspire youth of color to be curious and excited about more inclusive technology. She also teaches modern dance at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop to encourage youth to strengthen their creative movement and expression, and she does open mics to listen to the community, and to keep herself centered and sane.
