In Brittany’s first three years at Spelman, she has been active both on campus and throughout the city of Atlanta. She interned for three months with Partnership for Southern Equity, a non-profit organization that works to promote economic equity throughout neighborhoods in metro Atlanta while educating partnering organizations on the importance of sustainability and how to care for the environment. During her time with Partnership for Southern Equity, she led a sustainability workshop with Sustainable Spelman, a student-led sustainability group at Spelman College and the University of Michigan’s Student Sustainability Coalition President to explore different ways to reach their goal of making Spelman a zero-waste campus. In addition, Brittany volunteers weekly as a SpelREADS Reading Guide where she works with elementary school students in metro Atlanta to strengthen their literacy skills.

This year, Brittany served as a delegate for Spelman’s On the Hill Initiative where she met with members of Congress and Spelman alumnae at Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. to advocate for incorporating restorative justice practices into educational systems and removing the pushout of minority students.

Brittany was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. She spends her free time enjoying the company of her friends, family, and dog. She loves to read, play tennis, visit new restaurants with the people she loves, and go to baseball games with her cousins.
