Why Britt writes:
I write to inspire people. I share my story in hopes to connect with others. To let those who wake up each morning with an obstacle to face know that they are not alone in this. I write to show that despite the hardship one may face, one can find direction and happiness, and begin the precipitous climb towards reclaiming themselves.
