Bryana Sirisute-Popejoy
Bryana Sirisute-Popejoy is currently an 8th grader in the Dana Middle School STEAM magnet program. Bryana is the Editor In Chief of the Dana Mariner and is perfect for the job. She is in her graduating year and recalls all the “great” times she had when attending South Shores Elementary School before her start at Dana.

Whenever Bryana isn’t writing articles for the Dana Mariner, she enjoys drawing and photography. She loves doodling anime characters, but, from time to time, she will draw the environment around her. Sometimes she just draws whatever comes to mind. Bryana also takes photos every chance she gets so that she can become the best artist or photographer she can be. Her skills come especially handy when she’s travelling. Bryana has traveled to places like Switzerland, Thailand, Japan, and other places just as amazing. 

Bryana enjoys her time with Journalism and loves to write articles about nature and how we need to be more aware of it. In an interview Bryana said, “I chose journalism as my elective so I can write about certain subjects and topics that I'm interested in, and it also gives me the opportunity to be able to expand and improve my writing skills.” Bryana also saw Journalism as the best opportunity because she has strength is the subject of English.

Bryana is scared about leaving Dana at the end of the year, but stills sees a bright future her way. She isn’t entirely sure what school she wants to attend after Dana, but she hopes it’s somewhere around Torrance or San Pedro. She’s keeping her fingers crossed!
