Gariyana, 19

From: Brooklyn

Focus: Acting, Music

Gariyana is a 19 year old performing artist from Brooklyn. She enjoys writing songs, singing and dancing. She prides herself in her ability to comfortably speak to and perform for large audiences. She credits this to her theater background. With Art Start she plans to continue developing her voice when it comes to both singing and songwriting whilst pursuing acting/improv classes. Aaliyah is her biggest inspiration because of the way she was able to inspire and touch so many people at such a young age.
