As a young teen, Brisma didn’t think she would face many challenges. She had a great relationship with her mother, who was her closest confidante, and they often spoke about her future. Brisma’s family was always there for her, and they inspired her to pursue her career path of becoming a child psychologist. For Brisma, the challenges that she didn’t think she would face came just as she started high school when her mother began a job that took her away from home and a family member was deployed to Iraq. Brisma was chastised in front of her peers and was told her that she would not get into college and, quickly, she began to believe what she was being told.
When Girls Inc. came to her school, Brisma discovered how she could handle the challenges in her life. Here, she learned about maintaining healthy relationships with friends and family members and how to communicate to her mother that she felt alone and forgotten. The confidence to speak up for herself also helped Brisma succeed in school, where she renewed her drive to attend college and study psychology: a field she is studying today at San Diego State University.
