Brianna Broady, MFA - Instructor
Brianna Broady has worked with Education Unlimited for 8 years. When she's not working with EU, she's a full-time professor in Speech Communication at Pasadena City College as well as a coach of their Speech and Debate Team. When she was in the 8th grade, Brianna published her first book, "So You Want To Be A Swimmer." She had fallen in love with the sport of swimming at the age of 5 and wanted to share this love with others as well as give them a guide to enter into the world of competitive swimming. After that, she published a few childrens' books with her grandmother that turned into a series exploring the adventures of a mischievous cat called, "Missy the Kitty." She is so excited to be working with students in our EWI Camp because writing is such a beautiful exercise of self-expression and she looks forward to guiding students through that process. She'll see you all at camp!
