Get to know Brianna...
Meet the reigning North Carolina Quarter Horse Association Queen, Brianna Tamulewicz. As a former Youth World Champion, Bree has her eyes set on a new prize this year as she prepares to compete for the title of 2015 Congress Queen. Get to know her better in the interview below.
1.) Name and Association Representing:
My name is Brianna Tamulewicz and I am representing the North Carolina Quarter Horse Association.
2.) Where are you from? Tell us a little about your hometown.
I am originally from Westerville, Ohio, but my family moved to Aberdeen, North Carolina when I was 17 years old. It is a very small, southern town about 40 minutes from Pinehurst, where the 2014 U.S. Open Golf Tournament took place.
3.) Why did you chose to compete for the title of 2015 All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen?
I chose to compete for the 2015 All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen because I want to continue work to educate and inspire the younger generation of, not only, North Carolina Quarter Horse Association but to also encourage them get involved and to really become active with the American Quarter Horse Association and all that it has to offer. Growing up, I had the privilege of knowing several past Congress Queens and they were all so inspiring and encouraging to me. I want to inspire and offer support to others the same way that those Queens did for me.
4.) Are you currently in school? Employed?
I am currently a junior at Auburn University, majoring in Psychology. I plan to finish my Bachelor's degree and continue on to earn my Doctorate degree.
5.) What is your favorite horse memory or accomplishment?
My favorite horse memory, hands down, is the day that I won the Western Pleasure at the Youth World in 2011. When I came back out of the pen with my trophy and neck wreath, a little girl and her mother followed me. They stood and waited until I had finished my interview, then the little girl came up to me and introduced herself and said to me, "One day, I want to be just like you!" And that is something that I will never forget.
6.) Interesting fact about yourself.
An interesting fact about me would be that I have shown my Quarter Horses in 38 of the 50 states!
