Brittany A. Smith

As an undergraduate at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Brittany has been interested in writing since her freshman year. She decided to take her interest in writing seriously the spring following her freshman year, and became a columnist for The Michigan DailyBrittany continued with her involvement at The Michigan Daily throughout her sophomore year where she frequently  wrote articles debating race and identity on the University of Michigan’s campus. Given her contributions to The Michigan Daily, she was awarded the distinguished Rosa Parks Award by the NAACP-UM Chapter.

The curiosity for writing continued to follow Brittany, this time it traveled with her internationally in London where she studied sociology at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). While reading sociology at LSE, Brittany freelanced for The Beaver, LSE’s student- led periodical.

When Brittany came back to the United States to finish up her senior year at Michigan, she came across the Writing Minor Application through the Sweetland Center for Writing at the University Michigan. Upon closer review of the Minor, Brittany considered continuing her education at Michigan for a fifth year to refine her identity as minor. Given her admission to the Minor, Brittany felt that her decision was made. She would be staying for a another year at the University of Michigan to become a better writer.
