On October 28, 2015 a panel of advertising executives gathered at the American Advertising Federation (AAF) headquarters in Washington, DC to select the 2015 class of Most Promising Multicultural Students. Brittany Johnson, an advertising major, was selected.

Brittany, along with 50 other students, were selected by industry professionals from Carmichael Lynch, The CDM Group, Deutsch, Leo Burnett, Mary Kay, McCann Worldwide, Omnicom Group and Team Ignition Pancultural Marketing.

Johnson earned a spot in the program due to her outstanding academic record and her professional experience. Students selected as Most Promising students represent the top of their class and have demonstrated likelihood of future success through internships, leadership activities, community service, innovation and creativity.

Already, Brittany has taken on varied roles within the industry:

  • Media Planning Intern for DigitasLBi_US, New York
  • The Center for Hispanic Marketing advertising intern, Tallahassee
  • Metropolitan Design and Consulting Firm, Tallahassee
  • Competed in Arrowhead, Tallahassee

Brittany is from Wellington, Florida. She majors in Advertising and minors in Business and Multicultural Marketing Communications. “In my free time I enjoy photography, drawing, and exploring new places. This past summer I interned in NYC, which allowed me to learn a great deal and meet many influential individuals. I would not have these great opportunities without the support of my family, friends, MAIP, and Florida State University!” said Brittany.

After graduation in Spring 2015, she will be working at DigitasLBI in New York City as a Media Planner. Her motto is: “The one who takes a chance, who walks the line between the known and the unknown, who won’t accept failure, will succeed.”

In the future Brittany aspires to open a marketing consulting company that encompasses continuous research.
