My name is Brian. I am the only child of my two loving parents. I attended B. F. Grady Elementary and East Duplin High School. I play the trumpet in my high school's concert band, as well as the guitar in my free time. Over the years, I have learned that hard work does pay off. I have worked hard to maintain good grades and to stay involved with my school and community. I now plan to attend East Carolina University and pursue a career in Computer Science.
