Brilynne Parrish

International Fellow
Location: Northern Ireland
College: University of Pennsylvania

Bri is originally from the Washington, DC suburbs, where she attended Seneca Valley High School in Germantown, MD. There she was a 3 letter Varsity athlete, running cross-country and track and playing basketball. After graduation, she continued playing basketball for the University of Pennsylvania Quakers, competing at the highest collegiate level and focusing her studies on finance and public policy.

After completing her degree, she moved to New York City, where she established a career working on the business side of fashion and traveling in her spare time. On one particular holiday she had the opportunity to visit her friend and former high school teammate, Latoya Fisher, who was an international fellow in the Middle East at the time. While there she saw PeacePlayers in action – different groups of youth excited to come together to play basketball and make new friends.

Upon returning to the States, she decided it would be amazing to be a part of the PeacePlayers team, playing basketball and making an impact on young people. She is in Northern Ireland to aid in Technical Assistance. In her spare time she enjoys playing all different sports and learning languages.
