Bryanna is a proud Afro Latina who was born in Red Deer Alberta, Canada. Bryanna's musical abilities originated with her biological family and were nurtured by her adoptive family, creating a household that was never quiet and full of music. Her passion for music was evident at a young age (the only reason she played soccer was for the orange slices at halftime), she started playing violin at three, piano at five and trumpet and french horn in elementary school. Bryanna caught the theatre bug when she was seven after seeing a production of Sound of Music and has not stopped singing since.
Bryanna traded in snow-capped mountains for the great lakes, currently residing in Cleveland, Ohio as she earns her Bachelors of Music in Music Theatre from Baldwin Wallace Univeristy. Upon graduation she plans to follow her 11 year-old dreams and move to New York City. One of Bryanna's favourite parts of theatre is the #swingnation life. She is thankful for the training she has received that has given her the tools to be flexible and jump into mid-production projects at a moments notice.
When not working, or writing for Her Campus Bryanna loves to tee off at the local mini golf course (even if there aren't orange slices involved) or go for long walks with her two puppies Mojo & Pepper. She loves to get lost in new music on Spotify, write songs she will record one day, and can often be spotted curling up with a good, yet predictable romance novel (The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory is her fav).
