My name is Brezana Cross. I reside in Yazoo City. I enjoy baking, reading and binge watching television. I have a passion for service. When I am not at work, I am usually at home enjoying quality time with my puppy KoKo. My favorite scripture is Phillipians 4:13, "I can do all this through him who gives me strength."


I graduated from Yazoo City High School in 2012. I continued my education at Spelman College. In 2016, I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. I obtained my Master of Education Curriculum and Instruction Degree at Belhaven University. I graduated in May of 2019.
