I am Brianna Fugate. I was born in Queens, New York. I am 14 years old, and I live with my mom and my dog, Mocha. I like to dance and play soccer and violin. I usually spend my time with my family. When I am not with them, I go to the movies, mall and out to eat with my friends. I love to shop for clothes and shoes. In the future I plan to be a graduate of Spellman College and then go to Medical School. I’ve lived on Staten Island for awhile, and I love it here. I don’t think I would ever want to move. I love to eat.
My recorder, Lindsay, is funny, good looking, and very interactive.
