The Ultimate PA Bucket List: 101 Things to Do in Pennsylvania Before You Die

About the Writer
Brianna Stritzinger, Student Writer
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

My name is Brianna Stritzinger, and I’m a senior at Greater Nanticoke Area High School. This is my second year working on The GNA Insider.

I enjoy reading for my entertainment, writing in my free time, listening to music, doing my hair and makeup, playing video games in my spare time and living my life to the fullest. I find being myself is one of the most important things that I could do for myself and the others around me. Throughout my life I have encountered many tragic events, but through it all, I have always been resilient.

Some of my greatest accomplishments are making high honors and taking two honors courses my junior year. I never give up in anything I try to do and I always try to be the best person I can be. Most of my accomplishments have come from working on The GNA Insider.
