Brianna Sitkowski is a Broadcast Journalism Major and Public Relations Minor at Columbia College Chicago. Even though she is only a sophomore, she has proved that she is a stellar student. Sitkowski made the Dean’s List and is an active member of The National Society Of Collegiate Scholars. Her dream is to one day be a news anchor for ABC7 Chicago or be a talk show host for Dancing With The Stars.
Before college, Sitkowski was a competitive dancer for 13 years. She was trained by some of the best instructors in the Chicagoland area and even traveled all over the U.S. for competitions and conventions. Her instructors have been seen on America’s Best Dance Crew, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and Wicked The Musical. Her close friends Sean and Luke were on America’s Got Talent too. She is most well known for her award winning tap and musical theater numbers.
Her love for dance has taught her many life lessons which she wishes to carry on through her college career and beyond. Now, she is working hard to make all of her educational and life goals come true. What made her decide to go into broadcast journalism was her love to help others. People turn to the media and news outlets when they did not get the proper assistance from an agency, police department, or some other type of organization and no one helped them. It’s then the media’s job to put the news on blast and get the story out there, so that they do get the proper help.
One day, Sitkowski dreams of having a happy and healthy family of her own while still maintaining a career. If you know Sitkowski, you know that she is outgoing, unstoppable, good-hearted with a vibrant, lovable, spirited personality. In the future she hopes to pass on what her family taught her; “Chi la dura, la vince.”-He who strives for it, wins it.
