Born and raised in East Side San José, Brisa proudly serves the district she grew up in. At a young age, she volunteered at her local library; where she would read to kids and organize books. In high school, she took on many leadership roles to help her community. Many of these roles encouraged students to speak up and make a difference in their school. She is currently a student at San José State in pursuit of a bachelor's degree in political science and a minor in Environmental Justice.
Her parents immigrated from Mexico to California and struggled to make ends meet. However, they persevered because they wanted a better life for their children. Now Brisa and her siblings are doing everything they can to make them proud, and let them know their sacrifices were not in vain.
She loves spending Friday nights with her cat and dogs and eating lunch with the D5 team. She is excited to be part of District 5's East Side Team, and help you with any concerns you have!
