Student Spotlight on Brianna Anunciacao


Nicole Schmitt, Staff Writer

What is something you learned as a child that has always stuck with you? 

I learned to always take a chance on something, even if the outcome isn’t always going to be the outcome you want it to be.

Who are your favorite teachers and why? 

My favorite teachers have to be Mr. Zimmerman and Mr. Balas from the junior high. Both of them made going through the weirdest and most confusing year so much better, and that was the first year out of my entire life that I actually understood math.

What activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of school? 

I spend 90% of my time reading and playing guitar. Other than that, I spend as much time as I can with my friends and family having fun.

What is something that most people may not know about you?

Most people probably don’t know that Spotify recorded that I listened to more music than 99% of America in 2021.

What movie could you never get tired of watching? 

I could never get tired of watching Five Feet Apart. That movie simultaneously breaks my heart and puts it back together again every time.

Which countries/places would you like to visit?

I would love to visit Italy. there’s not really a specific reason, but I like Italian food and the country’s a funny shape. After that, maybe China. I’m beginning to learn Mandarin, and I feel like it would be really cool to go there and be able to speak the country’s common language. It would be my fourth language, so going there and being able to have conversations with people would feel so rewarding.

What is your life motto?

According to my sister, my life motto is ‘whatever happens, happens.’

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? 

If I could have any superpower, I would choose invisibility. I would be able to experience so many things, like staying in a library overnight to catch up on a few books and just being able to have the entire place to myself. Also, I think people-watching is a relaxing activity, to see how people react to their environment and to make guesses about their lives based on the few minutes I witness. It’s like writing short stories in a timed period, but having to base the stories off of what you see in front of you.
