Miss Long Island 2018
Briana is extremely humbled and honored to hold the title of Miss Long Island 2018. Briana is a Brentwood native with an bold and ambitious soul. She recently graduated cum laude from Pace University with a Bachelor’s in Business Management and she now works in digital marketing for a leading luxury skincare brand. She hopes to one day launch her own line of cosmetics.
Some of Briana’s hobbies include make-up application, cosmetic chemistry, weight training and cooking. Her passion is beauty but she always believed that outer beauty only captures the eyes and it is one’s inner beauty that is capable of having a lasting affect on the world.
Briana competed in her first pageant in 2016 because she was inspired by the responsibly that comes along with being a title holder. After seeing how much negative attention her hometown had been receiving, she knew she wanted to run for Miss Long Island as an opportunity to leave a lasting legacy of positivity in her community. Briana’s platform is Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Long Island because it affords leaders across Long Island the opportunity to inspire children in need and encourage them to reach their full potential. Her ongoing message to the youth is that no dream is too big to pursue, no matter who you are and no matter where you come from.
In all of her endeavors she has sought to pave the way for younger women to fearlessly aspire to reach any goal. As Miss Long Island 2018, she will continue her work with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island and other similarly situated programs so that she can continue to shape the lives of young women in Long Island and New York.
