    'Draagt' comes from the verb 'dragen' wich could be translated in differences ways.

    In your exeple you're saying;
    Jackie draagt de koffer.
    'Jackie carries the suitcase'

    But we can also say;
    Ik draag een shirt
    'I'm wearing a shirt.'

    I hope you'll inderstand!
    To bring should be: 'Brengen'
