The oldest of three children living in a single parent home in West Oakland, Brittney will be the first in her family to go to college. While doing a school project, Brittney helped discover that pollutants were being released in the air by a nearby factory. This led to a summer job working for the Rose Foundation, a grassroots organization which advocates for environmental protection through grant-making programs. Brittney is a leader at school: Captain of the cheerleading squad and first place winner of the 2006 regional Oratorical Fest. Brittney will attend Chico State.
