Brigitte (15 years old) 2015-12-15
I was named after Brigitte Bardot, a French sex symbol in the '60s. Other than the Irish in my name, I show no pride in in my name. People like to tease me about it by pronouncing it bree-git, bree-geet etc. I'm American so I like to keep the pronunciation of my name English. [Bridge-it] Even though the form of my name is French {Bri-zhitte].
