Brianna Inda is a member of the Woodrow C. Scoutten / Tolleson Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix, a talented artist, and an enthusiastic volunteer in her community.
Why do you think your Club nominated you to be featured in In The Zona?
I’ve been coming to the Club since I was 11, and I’ve been really active in everything there is to do here. This year, I’m Treasurer of the Keystone Club. We help volunteer with and raise money for good causes in the community, including the Boys & Girls Club. I also help with younger members. I really like reading with them and I especially like helping with art projects.
What kind of art projects are you most excited about?
I’m always working on something. I like pencil sketches, lots of landscapes and animals. Lately, I’ve been doing more with animation. I want to major in computer engineering or science and graphic design so I can continue doing more with that.
Computers and art is a neat combination. What drew you to them?
Art is my favorite thing to do, but I want to use my intelligence to get a good, challenging job. I’m taking advanced physics right now, and I really like that kind of problem-solving where you have to be creative and logical. I’m taking a lot of advanced placement classes now so that someday I can have a job where I can solve problems all day.
What is your favorite thing about your Club?
It feels like a family. Everyone is so nice and the Club is like a second home. The staff always encourages me and pushes me towards my goals. Robert, our teen associate, is a great mentor to me.
