Brittany is fifteen years old and is currently a sophomore at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School, where she is a varsity cheerleader and a honor student. She comes from a big loving family, having three brothers and three sisters. The love and support of her friends and family has been vital for her success and for her future endeavors.
Brittany is an advanced SCUBA diver, having dove in shipwrecks and caves in places such as Honduras and Hawaii. She enjoys traveling to exotic locations and has visited a third world country. Some of her other hobbies include reading, cheerleading, photography, and community service.
Her platform is the Starlight Children's Foundation, a non-profit organization which helps bring joy to seriously ill children and their families through entertainment, education, and family activities. The foundation softens the hard edges of what a family experiences when a child has a serious illness, from the time of diagnosis all the way through, in the hospital and at home. When a child has a serious medical condition, everyone is affected. The kids, their parents and siblings struggle with the intrusion of the illness into their lives.
She is currently the MidAtlantic Teen Ambassador who works with the children and families in Maryland, D.C., Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania.
