Advocating for Social Justice

Brianna Natale
From Dolphin to Fulbright Scholar

Brianna Natale ’16 has long been concerned about the mental health disorders that impact nearly one in five U.S. adults. A dual major in biological sciences and psychology, Natale has also learned that poverty, extreme stress and low social support increase the risk for these illnesses. For Natale, aiding people affected by these disorders is about more than promoting well being. It’s about advocating for social justice. Read more of Brianna's story.

ESPN Intern at ESPN

When I first became interested in this field, I wanted to be a SportsCenter anchor, and I would still love to do that. However, I’ve found that I also really enjoy working behind the camera. Being a producer may be a new dream of mine.
