Brianna Watts, Founder, President

"Leaders build other leaders," is one of Brianna's favorite quotes when it comes to leadership and success. Brianna founded Watts Academy of Success with the intent to give back to her hometown and community. She wanted to be a positive example and role model to black girls in her home community where leadership and positivism was at minimal or hidden. Blessed with the vision from God, she finally did what she always dreamed of and took action to be of service in a great way.


Brianna is an alumna of both Florida State University and Florida International University. Her educational background is in Sociology, Higher Education, Academic Advising, African American and Leadership Studies. Brianna has had the opportunity to work at prestigious universities in the field of Student Affairs. She has worked at Predominately White Institutions, Hispanic Serving Institutions and History Black Colleges and Universities obtaining a plethora of knowledge in diversity and inclusion.Through her professional journey in Higher Education and Student Affairs, she is empowered to serve through her own creation, Watts Academy of Success, Inc.


Brianna believes exposure to knowledge, different experiences, and opportunities could change the entire trajectory of a young person's life in a very positive way. It is her goal and mission to equip thousands of teen aged girls with the tools they'll need to be successful in their lives.
