“I was that kid always singing. I didn’t realize I could do what I love as an adult.”

“My professors care so much about student success. They’re very involved with each student, helping us find the path that’s right for us.”

Brittany performing in Batboy: The Musical

Brittany Keys always knew she wanted to sing. She was in show choir in high school and says she has always loved being on the stage. What she didn’t know was how she could translate her love of performing into a future career. She says as a college freshman, she lacked confidence and focus and wasn’t sure of the right path for her.

Then, she became more involved with the new musical theatre program at Shawnee State University and gained skills and experience performing in SSU’s productions. Through advising with professors in the major, she says her educational and life goals became more clear — and she’s on the path to realizing those goals.

Brittany’s advice to high school students:

“Don’t be afraid to try new things. Take classes outside of the major you think you want. Explore.”
