“Music has always been a huge part of my life. My mom would always sing to me when I was growing up, and I was part of my church choir from five years old! I think the love of music and my passion for it has made me a passionate person in so many areas of my life. Hard work, determination, and passion have motivated me every step to get to where I am today.” Brzyski told Konversai in an interview in 2019.
