My name is Bridgette! My full name is Bridgette Kathleen which can be a lot at times lol. I was born in 1997. I've met a few other Bridgette's but never had any in any of my classes growing up! I really enjoy my name but when I was younger it was a lot to spell but all of my teachers knew my name. I often got called Brittany or Brianna because people aren't used to the name Bridgette which can be frustrating.
