"My mom and dad raised me to help people and follow my dream," Brianna says. "My dream is to make the world a better place one song at a time ... I want to make the world a better place."

Brianna also says playing the violin soothes her soul. "Whenever I'm happy, I play it. Whenever I'm sad, I play it. I mean it's just my passion and my hobby," she says.
