Overcoming MediocrityEMPOWERED WOMEN
Brittany Prince served in the United States Army from 2013-2018. During her time in the service, she was faced with a traumatic event that changed her life. In 2013, she was sexually assaulted by another service member. However, she still pushed forward and was able to put her offender on trial. By the Grace of God, she won. Since then, she has been a strong advocate in helping programs spread awareness of sexual assault/harassment in the military. She has worked alongside the Army’s Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Program (SHARP). She has even spoken out about her assault during a few of their events. In 2017, she had her first baby, Lucas. It changed her life forever. It gave her new perspectives on life and what was really important. The following year, she was able to get out of the military. She became a stay-at-home mother, and in 2019, she had her second baby, Lyla. Brittany loved everything about being able to raise her own kids, but she still felt like there was something missing. She wanted to do more, so in 2020, she started her bachelor’s degree from Liberty University, studying business (entrepreneurship). She eventually wants to have her own business helping women heal from their trauma. In 2021, she has now been given an opportunity to inspire others by telling her story in a book called “Overcoming Mediocrity: Empowered Women.” She not only wants to inspire others to be their best selves, but she wants to teach her kids that there is no obstacle they can’t get through.
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyways
Did you know that women in the military are more likely to be sexually assaulted by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire? Brittany is a survivor of MST (Military Sexual Trauma). With resiliency, determination and God on her side, she was able to report and take her case to court. After 8 years, she is ready to come forward and share her testimony of how she was able to get through the most traumatic event in her life. She hopes by sharing her story, it will inspire others to do the same. “Don’t be ashamed of your story, it will inspire others.”
