Brittany is involved in creating awareness of inequality in media, especially to young girls, women's rights (especially in other country's), and wanting to create/provide healthier food to America's public schools. Her goals for the year include: becoming proficient in her host language, letting the culture and experience redefine and shape who she is, creating new and lasting friendships, having a broader perspective on the world, eating lots of curry, and learning what the world needs most so she can become that thing.
