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.
