After completing this competition, though Brianna is young, she hopes to receive scholarships to help fund her college career and also make her more noticeable to recruiters. Brianna hopes to continue with track through her college career and has hopes of becoming an Olympian for Team USA. Besides aspirations of becoming an Olympian, Brianna would like to work for the FBI and is working towards her goals now by taking criminal justice classes at Parkside High School.
