About Brittany

Teacher Brittany graduated from UCLA in 2008.  In June 2010, she received a scholarship from AFS Intercultural Programs to be a Teaching Assistant in Thailand for 5 months, but she liked it so much she stayed for over two years.  Since then, Brittany has volunteered at an orphanage in Cambodia, seen the temples of Bagan in Myanmar, taken the slow boat from Laos, hiked to Mt. Everest Base Camp in Nepal, and taught all-girl classes at a large Catholic school in the south of Thailand.  Now she’s in Mae Sot,  helping a women’s group from southern Burma secure funding for human rights and health training.  Teacher Brittany can read, speak, and write in Thai (like a 2nd grader!) and is learning Burmese.  She enjoys making scrapbooks, reading, watching TED talks, and planning her next adventure.  Thanks for following her journey!
