Brittney has big dreams and buckets of Bengal pride

LEWISTON, ID - Brittney Keil wants to see the world. But before she goes out of state for college, studies abroad in Australia and live somewhere warm, she wants to boast her Bengal pride.

"It's twin day at LHS," said Keil.

Brittney certainly doesn't lack spunk. In fact, she sports polka dot nails year round, not to mention a 3.98 GPA and a spot in the National Honor society. Brittney is also the VP of French club, her favorite activity, because of her teacher, Ms. Yarno.

"We learn French in the classroom but she also teaches us like the importance of being yourself, being true to who you are and sticking to your guns even when times are tough and you don't agree with what's going on in your life," said Keil.

Lessons that Brittney wants to pass on to kids when she gets a masters degree and becomes a child therapist. Brittney knows is won't be easy but she has someone to lean on and look up to.

"My mom," said Keil. "She's the strongest person I know."
