HI! I'M BRIANNA.
A SOCIAL JUSTICE ACTIVIST
I’m also really passionate about speaking up for social change and human rights from around the world.
I've always strived to be a changemaker, and it is my personal mission to always work towards creating better lives and opportunities for people all around the world.
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to visit an orphanage in Vietnam. Witnessing the poor living conditions and meeting the children first-hand really opened my eyes.
To this day, it has remained an incredibly impactful experience in my life. Since then, I have continued to do social justice work through ME to WE, World Vision, and Operation Christmas Child. You can read more about my life-changing trip here (post coming soon!).
AN ASPIRING SCIENTIST
Medical science is a topic I can talk about endlessly! Earlier this year, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the 2018 HOSA Canada Student Leadership Conference in Toronto.
Being a part of HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) gave me the chance to explore different medical fields and meet other students from around the country with similar interests.
During the conference I was able to attend speeches by world-renowned medical professionals, compete in my studied event (biomedical laboratory science), learn the basics to intubation, try suturing (for the first time!), and meet so many passionate individuals from a wide range of Canadian universities and high schools.
Nunquam despera. Nunquam se deder.
NEVER GIVE UP. NEVER SURRENDER.
(yes, that’s a Star Trek reference.
It just looks cooler in Latin)
