Stranger 64/100 – Brittany

100 Strangers - BrittanyOur next stranger certainly sticks out from the crowd.

Meet Brittany.

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Be patient. Things aren’t always going to happen when you want them to happen. Things just gotta happen the way they want to.”

So you believe in fate I guess? “Something like that, yeah.”

What are your goals right now? “Right now I have three startup businesses going on. Doing as many things as I possibly can to get my name and myself out there and to market my brand. And, hopefully one day, get married. {laughs}”

What if you didn’t get married… would that be a big deal? “No. It’s as much for my mom as me. {laughs}”

What is your biggest challenge right now? “I’m very shy, believe it or not. Large groups make me very uncomfortable.”

Would you say you’re an introvert then? “Very much so.”

Me too… “Approaching people is not typically my… if it’s larger, I get scared. If it’s a couple people, I can probably get into that. Being a lot more open and being able to communicate with a large mass of people is probably my biggest challenge.”

What would you do if you had a million dollars? “Buy me a new car… a sensible car like a mini cooper is what I want. Buy me a few tiny homes… no set number there. And travel the world. I’d still keep my regular job.”

Do you have a life philosophy? “It changes. Every quarter I have a newfound epiphany. My biggest thing right now is not to worry. I’m a very worrisome person. Sometimes my anxiety gets the best of me.”

If you could put a billboard up in Charlotte, what would it say? “Make someone else smile today.”

“So, get out of your phone. Talk to a person today. Make somebody else smile. Do something for the betterment of someone else.”

Technical Notes: We were on a shady city block. I used a reflector to increase the light on Brittany’s face.
