Brianna Hobbs (FLC '23)
I am interested in studying human behavior in attraction among early adults.
My name is Brianna Hobbs. I was born and raised in a small town on the Navajo reservation. I received my early childhood education learning the English language because I was monolingual in my own Diné language. After earning my diploma, I attended a community college also located on the reservation. It was a tribal college called Diné College which I attended for 2 years then received an Associate’s degree in Social and Behavioral Science. In 2021, I transferred to Fort Lewis College where I continued studying in Psychology.
At Fort Lewis College, I worked with psychology professors who helped me understand more about research. I worked on a study on nonhuman primate birth order and attachment. I also conducted a study on my own ethnic group (Diné) regarding cultural knowledge and birth order of siblings within my own community. I also did a study on sex addiction among college students which was associated with an addictions course that I have taken.
