Show notes

Originally from Houston, Texas, Brianna Herman moved around to Tennessee and Austin for school, but found her way back to Houston to serve her community. While at Fisk University, Brianna worked in various public service roles which ultimately caused her to pursue law instead her original interest in business.

Brianna has spent her life chasing a spark.  A spark to do more with her life, a spark to advocate for justice, a spark to do more.  That spark led Brianna to study abroad in China before which led her to learn more about herself. The spark also led Brianna to the University of Texas to study law, where a Critical Race Theory course changed her life.

Brianna is an advocate for passing the mic to the undervalued and under resourced people in our communities.  Currently, Brianna is an Assistant District Attorney in Harris Country and is tasked with  delivering justice to victims.
