A Message from Brittney aka Miss Brooklyn

I remember being a little girl watching amazing women, including my sister compete for the title of Miss New York. I never knew that I would one day have the opportunity to walk in their footsteps and strive to obtain a once in a lifetime opportunity. 

Being apart of the Miss America Organization has helped shape me into the young woman I am today. I was much more of a shy, insecure, and full of fears young girl before competing. Competing within this system has helped me with that. Each time that I stepped foot on the stage it forced me to face my fears and allowed me the opportunity to learn that I am beautiful, capable, and deserving of any opportunity within this amazing system.

Please join me for the Miss New York Pageant.

Commencement 2017
Location: College of Staten Island 2800 Victory Blvd. Staten Island, NY 10314

Date: Tuesday, May 30, 2017
Time: 9:30am

This is my last semester at the College of Staten Island and I will be graduating with a Bachelor's in Social Work in a few short weeks. I am grateful to have been the recipient ofnumerous scholarships which has allowed me to continue my education at ease with out having to worry about finances. I have been on the dean's list for four consecutive years and this past January I was inducted into the Tau Omega chapter of the Phi Alpha Honor society. Which is the National Honor Society for Social Work. Throughout, my time in college I was a Research Assistant in the English department, a Resident Assistant in the Residence Halls, a Peer Educator in the Health and Wellness center and a CUNY Service Corps Member. Additionally, I had to complete 480 field hours as a Social Work intern in an after school program in East New York, Brooklyn. I facilitated a girls to women group, a peer education group and a high-school freshman and sophomore peer group. I also provided one on one counseling, as needed.

I am pleased to say that the College of Staten Island has prepared me well for the future and I aspire to become a Social Worker in a hospital setting.  I will be attending Columbia University this upcoming fall to pursue a Masters degree in Social Work.  

The sixty-eighth Commencement of the College of Staten Island will take place on Tuesday, May 30, 2017.  This College‑wide ceremony will be held outdoors on the Great Lawn at 9:30 a.m., rain or shine.  (Should be about 2 hours).

No actual tickets are needed, come one come all!

Departmental exercises to honor graduating majors will be held by academic departments immediately following the College-wide commencement ceremony as well. Since I am graduating from the school of Social Work all of my guests will be instructed to go to the School of Business (3N) outdoors for this exercise. I also have a nice surprise for my guests that will be attending!
