It Was Not All Sunshine And Rainbows For Briana
Briana was judged and misunderstood when she moved to Los Angeles; she was driven and overwhelmed with a passion that she wore on her sleeve 24/7. The fact that she overshared her goals and accomplishments, and this was not reciprocated, weighed Briana down for the first few years. Her worst experiences flash back to being a young casting assistant and aspiring producer with imaginations of how to bring K-Pop to the big screen, but realizing she had been stereotyped as a fan girl who couldn’t be taken too seriously. Her confidence and inquisitive nature worked against her, with assumptions spreading about her intentions.
