After realizing the gravity of the bullying epidemic among our country’s youth, Brittany and her friends created an awareness campaign, including a video shown to thousands of students in her school district. Working with teachers and counselors, she helped motivate her peers to be open- minded and treat one another with respect. Brittany has committed hundreds of volunteer hours serving children, animals, the elderly, and her church. She was an award-winning captain of her varsity gymnastics team, and a pitcher on the varsity softball team. She also served on the principal’s leadership council, the Spanish club, and the Creating Exceptional Characters Club. From Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Brittany will attend The Ohio State University in the fall.
