Bio

Abrianna Jean-Baptiste transferred from Broward College to FIU to pursue a double major in Sociology and Women and Gender Studies. As a student growing up in a Haitian American household, she has always valued morality and internal strength. She aims to bring these values into the LGBTQIA+ community. Abrianna creates and hosts college community events that inspire students to think critically about their own lives. As Pride Student Union President at FIU, she strives to reform the campus into a safer space for LGBTQIA+ students and help students find leadership qualities within themselves to change the landscapes of our futures. Within her roles at the FIU Pride Center, she seeks to implement change at FIU from the inside out with her team and those who support her.

Abrianna was the president of the Gender Sexuality Alliance at Broward College in 2019-2020, and during high school, she was a mentor for younger students at Miramar High School. At FIU, she has hosted or served as a panelist on events such as Black Brilliance: Being and Becoming and several That’s So Queer Instagram Live discussions, Queer Black Experiences, The Sapphic Panel, and Bridging the Gaps: Blackness. Throughout her time at FIU, Abrianna hopes she can live her fullest truth and learn from others about the importance of vulnerability.

Abrianna enjoys reading, playing video games, and writing. She is also a huge Marvel fan and a lover of pop culture and music. She is also a fan of learning new things about environmental science, culture, and food. She is open to new friendships and knowledge to make her perspectives on life open-minded to be more inclusive to everyone they meet. She loves quality time with family and friends and has two cockatiels named “Sunny” and “Sky.”
