As Westridge is working towards routinely examining and intentionally designing a learning environment where all students can thrive, alumna Briana Price '04 was invited to campus to share her story with members of the Black Student Union. Price, a Pasadena native, studied at Columbia University preparing to be a doctor, but her love of arts prompted her to pursue acting and dance. Price has since toured with rapper singer-songwriter Nicki Minaj, performed on “13 Reasons Why,” “Shameless,” and “Glee” among other shows and stage performances, and wrote, directed, produced, and starred in a web series titled "Sunday."

In a small group setting with the students during lunch, Price shared that life and career paths are not always linear, and that it’s OK to change your mind.
