Hey! My name is Brittany Gowen. My middle name, which is Mare, was really only used by my parents when I would get in trouble as a kid. To this day, even though my middle name hasn’t been used in quiet a few years, it still makes me cringe when someone says “Brittany Marie”.
I’m from Snellville, Georgia and went to Brookwood high school which is of course home of the good ol’ 2011 Brookwood VS. Grayson rivalry along with the two well known songs of the town “Brookwood Where You At” and “Grayson Step Your Game Up”. Everyone in Gwinnett County knew about it and each video had over 500,000 views. People will still bring up the songs on occasions depending on the area I’m in when they ask what high school I attended.
With that said, I’m not too far away from Piedmont College. I chose Piedmont for the main purpose of lacrosse. I’ve always loved playing sports growing up and sports have always been apart of me. I came in as an athletic training major and I soon found out that science was clearly NOT my cup of tea. My freshman year was spent in the health science department here at Piedmont and I later realized that what I really wanted to do with my life was in the mass communications department. I then changed majors and now I’m here, still playing lacrosse and now doing the things I love to do. I’m now a sports communications major. I found this past summer to do what makes you happy and to follow your passions instead of doing something that you thought you wanted to do three years ago. Things change.
