by | Apr 15, 2022

GASP: What is your major at and why did you choose it?

Bri: I chose to major in environmental studies to better understand the climate crisis, what brought us to it, and how we can create a more equitable and sustainable world.

GASP: What do you hope to do after you graduate?

Bri: I hope to work for a nonprofit that advocates for environmental justice.

GASP: What is your dream job?

Bri: My dream job involves advocating for and implementing sustainable infrastructure on a global scale.

GASP: What do you hope to learn while interning with GASP?

Bri: I hope to learn more about working with local communities to address the root causes of environmental injustice. 

GASP: Why is our mission to reduce air pollution important to you?

Bri: Everyone has the right to clean air. The fact that people’s health and livelihoods are put at risk for the sake of profit is deeply disturbing.

GASP: What is your favorite food?

Bri: Dumplings 🙂

GASP: Where do you consider your hometown?

Bri: Mobile, AL

GASP: What are your hobbies?

Bri: I love to crochet (I’m not very good), hike, and make art.

GASP: Who or what are your influences?

Bri: I am influenced by people who see the world as it could be rather than how it is. People who fight everyday to see a more sustainable and more equitable world. I’m also driven by the fact that there is something very deeply wrong with the way we operate now. To secure a future for unborn generations, bring equity to Black and brown communities at the forefront of the ecological crisis, and become better stewards of the earth, we must change. I hope to work towards that transition in a way that helps us all.

GASP: What are some other fun facts about yourself?

Bri: I love making ceramic art.
