Brittni Hamm
Brittni currently has an Associate of Science degree from the Community College of Aurora and is pursuing her B.A. in Biology with a Psychology minor. She was an Honor Roll student all four years of high school and was enrolled in math and chemistry advance placement programs. She was also involved with A.V.I.D. (Advancement Via Individual Determination). Brittni believes that the harder the challenge the greater the reward. She wants to speak for those whose voices are not heard. She states that she attends college, “not because I want to make the high salary or anything artificial, I do it because I want to know all that I can about as much as I can, and that my ability to make a difference will therefore be infinite no matter how big or small. All I want to do is make a difference.”
