Brillana was an amazing person, a great friend to many and, most of all the best mother to her son, Elias. Elias was her whole world, she loved capturing every moment spent with him on camera. She always went above and beyond for him. She was hardworking, and very talented, loved to write, draw and do photoshoots of her friends and family. She loved to listen to music and really understand the lyrics and feeling free. Brillana was the light of any room she entered, always with her contagious smile and jokes. She was such a caring person and big on giving. Always putting others first and helping or donating to those in need. She was young but very mature and responsible, always on top of everything. Brillana was a beautiful, free spirited, strong willed, independent young woman and will forever live in our hearts.
