Working with people and woman of color such as herself inspires her to tell her own story and this is ingrained in her love for the social sciences because she feels that every major, minor and specialization is a way to tell someones’ own story. Breanna will attend the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign to pursue her PhD.
