Florida Memorial University Alumni Spotlight: Brittany McMillion (439 hits)


Meet Brittany the Culture Changer. She breaks barriers and has a desire, and a passion for serving. In a society that is fixated on narcissism and “all about me”agenda. The Culture Changer is concerned about the agenda of the family, community, and society.What is a Culture Changer?Culture changer– is one who is willing to put self-last in order to empower and/or invest in the advancement of society/people.1. Give your background/ tell us about yourself-Living in the DC area for over 8 years, I was born and raised in Florida I am a graduate of Florida Memorial University and currently obtaining my Masters of Science in Administration at Trinity Washington University. I currently work as a contractor as a program analyst, but my heart and passion are serving others. Once a quarter, I solicit donations from family and friends to distribute personal hygiene care packages and lunches to those who are less fortunate in the Washington, DC area. I started this initiative a little over 2 years and within that span, we have distributed over 450 care packages and lunches.

2. What or who inspired you to serve?

My mother has inspired me to serve, she has always instilled in myself and my sister the old proverb “If I can help someone as I travel along the way, then my living shall not be in vain”. I try my best to live by that motto every day of my life.

3. If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people what would your message be?

That they are loved, I know it may sound cliche considering the recent world-wide events, but I am a firm believer that everyone wants to know that they are loved. So, through my giving back initiative, I want every person that receive a package and/or meal to know that it came from a place of love and if I never see them again, to know that someone loves them. That’s what this world needs for people to show love to their fellow mankind.

4. How important is the family in our community?

Family is HUGE in our community; I believe the family helps shape you into being the person that you are. To me, a family does not include those who are biologically connected to you, but it could be a neighbor or close friend(s). I was blessed to grow up with a close-knit family(biological and nonbiological)and friends who are my family. A strong and loving support system from family is contagious in what has been instilled in you, you would naturally want to spread it to others.

5.Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Wow, in 5 years…. I see myself with a Master’s Degree and with a non-profit organization continuing to serve the less fortunate men and women in the DC area.

6. How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered as someone who believed in spreading love to everyone no matter their background. I am a firm believer that at the end of the day everyone wants to feel and be loved. So I want to be a light that spreads love to anyone that I come in contact with.

7. Anything else you would like to share?

It’s never too late to live in life’s purpose.
