Meet Bria Sullivan | Software Engineer at Google

Meet Bria Sullivan, she is a software engineer at Google living in Venice, California. Her career in tech was inspired by art and being able to create ANYTHING from NOTHING! Technology is a blank canvas and she is the artist. She attended California Polytechnic State University Obispo, and studied Computer Science. Five years ago, she wishes she knew her voice and opinion are valid, especially in a room full of men and white women, so her advice to anyone interested in her career path would be to call people out and be more confident in your voice!

She believes encouraging women and students to explore careers in the fashion and tech space is important because technology is shaping our future and we need to create more products for ourselves, instead of allowing people who don't live in our shoes to do it. She is currently working on a Permanent 3D Interactive Installation for the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History to help change the way we learn from our history. She is also assisting people of color in the tech space, by way of startup or company, through the Neighborhood Start Fund with Di-Ann Eisnor, the founder of Waze in the US, and Lupe Fiasco.
