Education and early life

She acted until she turned eight, and then focused on her education. Brittany studied at a local high school in Los Angeles, California, and was mostly interested in journalism and politics during her four years there. She matriculated in 2007, and then enrolled at college from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in political science in 2011.
