He has a wide variety of passions such as theater, tennis and ping pong, improv, photography, singing, creative writing, music, travel, and food; Bryan is a big foodie. Further, Bryan loves working with children. He co-founded The Improvisation Station, an after-school program dedicated to teaching young children improv to aid in fear-coping, teach them to accept and learn from failure, ease symptoms of social anxiety, and boost overall confidence. He also served as a two time counselor at Camp Harmony, a camp for underprivileged children. During high school, he was a member of the National Art Honor Society (NAHS), the Service Honors Society, the International Thespian Society, and the Mandarin Honors Society. While in Brazil, Bryan hopes to open his eyes to the greater world around him through the entirety of his experience. Bryan has lived in a very safe and comfortable bubble his whole life, and he looks forward to going far out of his comfort zone and finally exploring the real world. He hopes to mature greatly, overcome challenges, and return home with fresh experiences and newfound perspectives. While these are his goals, he understands that life seldom goes as planned, so he is simply going to take advantage of this spectacular opportunity, go in with no expectations, and live in the present!
