GET TO KNOW BRIAUNA.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT TGS?
Besides the community and staff, I love our ability to pivot as quickly as we do. We honestly do it all and I haven’t seen anything like it.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am the first person in my immediate family to graduate from a University. Knowing my journey is the blueprint for some of my family members speaks volumes to me..
If you could have dinner with 3 people, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?
Spike Lee- He is one of my favorite directors, he is unapologetically black and I would love to learn from him!
Beyonce- Her work ethic is unmatched and I have questions!
Michelle Obama- She is still my first lady and I want to learn how to go high when they go low! lol
Bonus: Aristotle-He is the creator of the 6 elements of a play and I would love to know why he went with those 6
What motivates you?
Doubt and Fear. When I am afraid of something, it makes me want it more. When I know others have doubt, it pushes me to prove them wrong.
