The duo caters to gifted children of color to provide a resource appealing to the intelligence, innocence and unique cultural perspective of this demographic, which is often neglected. Bri also is involved in her community and formed The Equity Collective with a group of friends to promote intersectional environmentalism and educate others on how climate disruption targets the most vulnerable populations. She also is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, serving those in need.
