Can you pinpoint a defining moment in your life?

A defining moment for me, was when I moved from Princeton, Missouri to Salisbury, MO. I was just going into 7th grade when I moved. At first, I didn’t want to leave all of my friends behind. Looking back it was the best change that happened for me. I felt at home in my new town and my life was put on a better path. After making Salisbury my new home, I became a much more involved and confident person.

If you could live anywhere, where would you choose and why?

If I could live anywhere, then I would pick New Zealand. I actually would like to go there for a few months once I’m done with school. I love adventures and going to new places. New Zealand is incredibly beautiful and being able to visit there would be a huge blessing.

What drew you to Theta?

The girls being so loving and genuine is what drew me to Theta. They are the type of people you want to have as friends and who will encourage you and make you better.

Where is your happy place and why?

My happy place is the dining room with my family. Lots of good food and fun conversations happen there :)

Where is your happy place and why?

My happy place is just anywhere in nature because I feel relaxed and free. 

If you could choose a song to describe your life, what would it be?

If I picked one song to live my life by it would be “I Lived” by OneRepublic because the song encourages everyone to make the most out of everyday.

What drew you to Theta?

Theta is a place where I saw leading women grow and inspire those around them. There are already so many Theta women that I look up to and admire. I believe sharing a sisterhood with such dynamic individuals will bring great experiences and in return, allow me to grow as a leader, woman, and person.

If you could choose a song to describe your life, what would it be?

One song that truly embodies my life from start to finish  has to be Swag Surfin' by Fast Life Yungstaz. Yes, I am still Groundhog Day-ing my middle school dances.

One time in my life when I felt like a leading woman was when I became captain of my high school Scholar Bowl team and lead us to become Conference champions.

Dancing Queen.

Name: Breana Smith

Hometown: Alton, Illinois

Major: Biomedical Engineering

If you could choose a song to describe your life, what would it be?

If I could pick a song to describe my life it would have to be Bohemian Rhapsody. This song (lyrics and music) is exciting, confusing, interesting, and calm all at once, and it has a lot going on (even though I don’t always know what is going on), but it is a song that I love regardless, just like my life!

When (or where) do you feel like your truest self?

I feel like my truest self when I am with my family, especially my mom. I have always been encouraged by my family to be my own person despite the actions and opinions of others. Therefore, I feel most comfortable to be my truest self when I am with them.
