Brittany Jenelle Burnam was born and raised in Texas but would be the first to admit that she "aint" no Southern Belle. Brittany is passionate about race, gender, education, poverty, and politics. She is currently the Secretary for the Texas Youth & College Division of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. She hopes that one day she can use the power of media to give marginalized groups and their stories a platform. When she isn’t writing she's probably community organizing, dancing, or eating Blue Bell Banana Pudding Ice Cream.
