Birizibe Gnassingbe

Hi, I’m Birizibe (briz-bee)! I grew up in Pittsburgh, but I currently live in Maryland. In addition to being on this committee, I’m also the President of The Minority Association in Computing, I’m a UTA & tutor in SCI, and conducting research in a few departments. In my free time, I love music, podcasts, movies, and being with my friends. And I’m really passionate about helping underserved communities, so I’m very excited to be on this committee!
