Master’s Candidate Charts Future Path in St. John’s ROTC Program

Born in the small community of St. Ann Parish in Jamaica, Brittany emigrated in 2013 to the United States with her family. Settling in Freeport, NY, she enlisted in the Army soon after her arrival. She became a citizen in 2020, the same year she completed her undergraduate studies at what is now the global division of the University of Arizona.

“Brittany’s experience as an enlisted member of the military adds to her credentials as a leader and inspires others in the battalion, who recognize her commitment to the Army,” he said. “She brings a sage wisdom to her peers about what the Army is and what it means to be a leader. She executes her job with great skill.”
