Somehow possessing the innocence of childhood while exuding maturity that belied her years, Brooklynn can swear like a sailor and look adorable doing it.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have heard of the 9-year-old child prodigy taking Hollywood by storm. But do you know her well enough?

Proving once and for all that intelligence does not have a time limit, Brooklynn stepped into the director's chair when she was 8.

Chasing the distinct privilege of being one of the youngest directors ever, Brooklyn is hard at work developing the short movie Colours. Mentored by The Florida Project director Sean Baker, the movie is undergoing some final touches before being released sometime next year. 

6. She started working when she was 2

Most of us cannot remember what we did when we were 2. Brooklynn, however can, thanks to her body of work all over the TV and flyers. 

She appeared in print and screen advertisements for a myriad of brands such as Parenting, Chuck E. Cheese's, and Visit Orlando, among others.

5. She wanted to be the first female president

Brooklynn's hopes of a first female US president were dashed when Hillary Clinton lost the running for the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.

"If you find your heroes to let you down, sometimes you have to be your own hero": a sentiment echoed by Brooklynn. 

If Brooklynn could not have a female as president, then she wanted to be the first female president. 

In a recent interview, she supposedly outgrew her "I want to be a president" phase and would rather a more fitting person in the presidential role: Angelina Jolie, or Angie as she calls her.

"I kinda changed it up a little bit. I want Angie for president now, but I would love to be the president."

To be fair, don't we all want Angelina Jolie to be the president?

4. She sponsored a Ugandan girl to get an education 

The "She is More Than" foundation looks to eradicate slavery from the world. It also hopes to provide basic human rights to the desolate people in sub-Saharan Africa.
