“I am perpetually inspired by all those who work to build resilience and equity in underserved communities. And, as a child of immigrants who was raised in the crevices of a fractured community, I could not help but become their ally.”
Breny Aceituno is Program Manager for Partnerships for Success, a program that aims to disarm the health disparities present in Latino communities living near the San Diego border. Breny graduated from UCLA with a bachelor’s in Political Science. She earned a master’s degree in Conflict Management from the University of Haifa in Israel. Breny considers herself a life-long learner who is driven by the actionable accountable measures that can improve our communities.
She has a passion for conflict management, investigative journalism, and for all the wonders that are often unmasked in places made up of dichotomies (i.e. border towns, conflict zones, and isolated communities). During her free time, Breny likes to soak up the sun at the beach, create art, and listen to storytellers tell their tall tales.
