Brianna Paul

SELI 2018 Fellow

A recent alumna of an esteemed Historically Black University, Brianna Paul graduated Summa Cum Laude from the great Bethune-Cookman University, where she earned a degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Exceptional Student Education as well as psychology. Brianna is a first-generation college graduate and the first amongst her siblings to receive a degree. During her time as an undergraduate student, Brianna not only excelled academically, she also immersed herself in various organizations including the National Council of Negro Women, SISTUHS Incorporated, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated.  Her time at Bethune-Cookman University afforded her ample opportunities that have served as a catalyst for her professional growth and development. These opportunities included: serving as a Servant Leader Intern for Children Defense Fund Freedom Schools and operating as a Special Needs Consultant and Liaison in a study abroad internship in Senegal (West Africa).

Currently, Brianna is in pursuit of her master’s degree in Higher Education. She envisions herself as a prominent and effective educator for exceptional students. She later hopes to obtain her doctorate degree in Educational Policy. Brianna is placed with the Jacksonville Public Education Fund this summer working to connect research with civic voice in order to support high-quality equitable public education in Duval County.
