Briana's love for the water began with “mommy and me" classes” when she was just nine months at her local YMCA in Baltimore. She continued lessons throughout her early years, and by the time she was six, she was already swimming competitively for the same YMCA. After two years on the Y team, she joined a club team called the Eagles Swim Team, where she swam until the freshman year of high school. Briana also enjoyed spending her summers with her friends at the Lochearn Community Club where she also swam for its summer swim team, the Lochearn Monsters. During her sophomore year, she swam for her high school team, the Seton Keough Gators. Throughout her high school career, Briana earned many medals and was awarded "Swimmer of the Year". After graduating in 2014, she went on to study at the New York Film Academy, where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting for Film. Briana is an aspiring actress, who would also like to write and produce films.
