Everyone, this is Brittney Herman, the creator of We Will. I wanted to give you all a little bit of background about myself.
I am a third-year law student at Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. I will graduate April 2020. I am studying tax law, but have also had the opportunity to study sexual education laws. Prior to law school, I earned my undergraduate degree at Tennessee Technological University in English Literature. I love scholarship and learning, and I am excited to continue my education.
Aside from law school coursework, I enjoy spending a lot of time with my family. I am the middle of five children. I own an earring business called "Poppy and Ty (@poppyandty on Instagram). I also participate in scholarship competitions through the Miss America 2.0 organization and am currently serving as Miss Zion 2020. I love to play the flute, and have been doing so for many years. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have immense faith in God.
Something else that defines me is that I am a sexual assault survivor. I have, unfortunately, been raped and sexually assaulted on multiple occasions. I used to let these experiences define me negatively. I was eaten up in depression and anxiety and generally, my life was a dark cloud. I wallowed in my pain, and worried only of myself. However, now these experiences define me for the better. I am now someone who fights for the rights of and is working constantly to help those who have been through similar experiences. It was a long journey of healing and changing. I had rely much on God and on my Savior, but I am a better woman now for my past and I am incredibly excited to do this work.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this page and participate in this work. It is one about which I am extremely passionate and look forward to working on further.
