This week we're crushing on the one and only Miss West Sound 2016, Brittney Brown!
Brittney's intelligence, beauty, and passion for making the world a more inclusive place is a huge inspiration to us at Beautifully Polished! Ever since she was 13, Brittney has been attending (and winning) beauty pageants. In addition to Miss West Sound, she's won the sash and crown for Miss West Sound Teen, Miss Kingston, Miss Tacoma, and now she has her sights set on Miss Washington! That isn't her only goal either, she is currently attending Western Washington University where she studies cellular and molecular biology with a minor in communication studies. Once she graduates, she hopes to use her degree to attend dentistry school in Washington or California. Using her platform as a fantastic pageant competitor, Brittney puts her all into promoting Disability Awareness and Inclusion. Her drive to create a more inclusive world has lead her to volunteer at the Special Olympics, participate in mentorship programs, and even host the upcoming Mr. and Miss Empowerment Pageant to empower those with disabilities!
The 2016 Mr and Miss Empowerment pageant is being held on May 14th at the Sheridan Park Community Center in Bremerton, WA. While all participants will receive an award, the winners of Mr. and Miss Empowerment will take part in a parade with Brittney! If you would like to support, attend, or participate in the pageant, please visit the Miss West Sound website.
Brittney wholeheartedly believes in the empowering people to be proud of who they are, no matter, their race, creed, religion, or disability. She sums it up as be proud of who you are. If you work your hardest, you are great, exceptional, and accepted!
