Brianna Pascua, who goes by Bri, is originally from the Bay Area and has been in Las Vegas for over two years, joining OCA Las Vegas as a mentee in 2023. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from CSU Channel Islands and a Master’s in Nonprofit Administration from the University of San Francisco. Bri currently works at the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations as the Executive Coordinator and manager of Board affairs, a nonprofit organization formed to create a national voice to advocate for the unique and diverse health needs of AA and NH/PI communities and health providers. She is passionate about empowering AA and NH/PI communities and advocating for access, equity, and representation. She will be applying to Ph.D. programs in 2024 with hopes of exploring her passion in higher education policy with aspirations to start her nonprofit that helps AA and NH/PI students and families navigate through the higher education system and beyond. Bri envisions a future where AAPI communities thrive by the power of their voices, with each generation rediscovering their narratives’ significance while also nurturing the emergence of new leaders committed to equity and empowerment. She hopes these leaders will channel their unique talents and passions to uplift the most vulnerable, actively creating opportunities for positive change in their communities to pursue a brighter, more equitable future.
