Brittany Gray '10
Brittany Gray '10 was raised in Derby, NY, a quiet suburb of Buffalo well-suited for shaping a creative mind. With no amusements other than rocks, sticks and passing woodland friends, Brittany developed a passion for reading early in her life. Her first literary companion was a certain Dr. Seuss, who taught her that you don't always need to use real words to make a rhyme. Like many adolescents, Brittany spent her teenage years with pranksters and troublemakers, the most prominent of which were Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde. Upon enrolling at Canisius College, Brittany took up a double major in English and History with a minor in Creative Writing. At Canisius, she was introduced to the work of many new writers, and was most influenced by George Saunders. Brittany plans on moving to New York City to pursue a career in writing and performing comedy.
