It’s awfully difficult no to admire actress Briana Roy. Born in Hollywod, Florida, the ten-year old model-turned-actress has already starred alongside award-winning actors like Ryan Philippe, in such movies as Reclaim. In that film, she played Nina, a Haitian adoptee who disappears after being adopted by an American family. Briana has three other movies coming up, and years from now, she will no doubt become the serious, grown actress she dreams of becoming.

Kreyolicious: What would you like to say to all the girls out there your age?
I would like to say to all the girls out there around my age to dream big, but not only dream but try to turn those dreams into a reality. Don’t let anyone try to intimidate you. If you feel like you got something and you really want something, go for it. Develop your skills. Go after what you believe in, and what you are passionate about whether it’s modeling, acting, sports, music, doctor, lawyer, teacher and so on.
