Bio

My name is Britnee McCauley. I am from Plainfield, Illinois where I grew up my entire life. I earned my associate's degree in Business Administration at Joliet Junior College. I moved to Maryland in 2020 where I started attending Bowie State University to pursue a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. I chose a major in business because I developed a passion for it at an early age, since I was surrounded by my family's owned alarm service company growing up. I also have a passion for education. I believe that the more knowledge we gain, the more we learn about the world and how to better ourselves. I know if I would have stayed in Illinois I would have been limited to the resources of my environment. I have since found a greater appreciation for travel as it has led me to a HBCU where I am able to dive deeper into my culture. My goal is to help make a difference in secondary education by teaching business skills to the younger generations, so that they learn valuable lessons that will help them when they become independent.

Achievements

My most recent achievement was being one of ten recipients to receive the HBCU S.O.A.R scholarship presented by Coca Cola Consolidated. The company provided an all expenses paid trip for me to go to their headquarters for a week to work on a case study to figure out how they could increase e-commerce sales. I was able to share my ideas along with my team, in front a panel of executives. At the end of the presentation we received a program completion certificate.

Another achievement of mine is that I wrote a chapter in a Technical Communication and Report Writing course book that is anticipated to be released the third week of September 2021. The book gives insight on black traditions and practices, as well as step-by-step written instructions and optional videos on how to do the discussed methods for various actions.

In April 2020, I was a finalist in the International Agility for Entrepreneurship. This was a case study competition to help a startup based in Germany called Migrapreneur come up with ideas on how to make an app they were developing successful. I received a certificate at the end of the weeklong program.

I am also proud to be working for Department of Homeland Security as a Human Resources intern.
