Bio: Brionna was born and raised in rural Mississippi. Coming from an immigrant household, Brionna took an immediate interest in immigration and international relations, which followed them into and throughout their undergraduate experience at Stanford University. Brionna recently graduated from Stanford with a B.A. in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and a B.A. in International Relations, with a primary specialization in Latin America and the Iberia and a secondary specialization in Middle East and Central Asia.
While at Stanford, Brionna studied at the intersection of gender and race. Having found that their interests in women and gender studies and Latin America intersected in interesting but complex ways, Brionna’s academic goals now center women of color, queerness, and queer Latinidad. Brionna is currently a student at the School of Foreign Service, where they are pursuing a Master's in Latin American Studies and a certificate in Gender, Peace, and Security.
