They resided and worked at The University of Eastern Africa, for five years. It was during her time living in Kenya, and traveling the continent with her parents that her curiosity about the ancient kings and queens of Africa began.
Brianna did her research on ancient Egyptian culture, with visits to the British Museum, the New York Metropolitan Museum, and reading several books by Historians and Egyptologists such as Ivan Van Sertima, Joyce Ann Tyldesley, Arielle P. Kozloff, Richard H. Wilkinson, and Zahi Hawass.
