Meet the Board: Trinisia Brooks
Updated: May 9
Trinisia Brooks, an advocate for children and families in our community, serves as the District Family and Community Engagement Liaison at Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corp. She can be
described as compassionate and driven. She is originally from Springfield, Illinois, and has attended Southern Illinois University, Ball State University, and the University of Southern Indiana.
“I am optimistic about the entire community working together in unison to reimagine a more just society for all people,” says Trinisia. “I am excited to serve on a board that amplifies and
uplifts the voices of all youth.”
As the newest member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Indiana, Trinisia is excited to continue advocating for mentorship in her local community. She says, “Kids are important because they are the future change agents, leaders, scholars. I believe providing access and opportunity will help them maximize their highest potential. This looks like investing holistically in their overall health, safety, and well-being.”
Trinisia dreamed of supporting children and families even as a young child.
“As a child I wanted to work with children and families,” she says. “I began community-based
work at the age of 14 years old. My first job was through a summer youth program. I worked as a Youth Counselor at the Boys and Girls Club.”
Her favorite quote is from Maya Angelou: “Whatever you want to do, if you want to be great at it, you have to love it and be able to make sacrifices for it.”
Fun facts about Trinisia include her favorite food is spaghetti, her favorite kids’ movie is Willie
Wonka and The Chocolate Factory, and her favorite movie is Coming to America. She loves to spend time with her family and friends, and also loves relaxing, napping, and exercising.
Please welcome Trinisia to the board!
