Ms. Bry

Bryanda Minix was directed to Project Row Houses by a professor, as part of a class assignment.  She started out as a volunteer with the After School Program.  At the end of the semester, she received not only an A on the assignment, but a job offer as well. Ms. Bry, as she is now affectionately known, has served PRH in various roles ever since, including: Group Leader, Art Instructor, Drama Instructor, and Creative Writing Instructor (Teen Program).  She understands that what began as a learning experience, continues to be.  She learned a great deal from both Ryler Dustin and her students; she learned how art can transform communities; and she learned the benefits of walking: reconnecting to familiar places and discovering new things.  You may find Ms. Bry riding her bike in Third Ward and throughout "Our Houston".
