Brittney Williams, 14, and a resident of San Bernardino County was crowned Miss Teen Black Los Angeles on March 15, 2008.  Brittney is an 8th grader at Rialto Middle School, located in Rialto, California and an eligible participant in the Gifted and Talented Education "GATE" program.  Brittney will share a part in several events and parades to represent the county of Los Angeles.

The Miss Black Los Angeles and Miss Los Angeles Galaxy pageant required contestants to be judged in categories of talent, evening gowns, interviews, fashion wear, and swimsuit competitions in which each of the young ladies were judged on intelligence, poise and elegance.

Each contestant selected their own platform of what they considered to be an important issue to focus on today.  Brittney's platform involved emphasis from the community and their involvement to implement prevention programs to deter youth from gang violence.  She feels if today's youth were offered more programs of interest to their generation this would assist them with school academics and limit the amount of time young people have to get involved in those dead-end avenues of street violence and "gang banging."  As best quoted by Quintus Ennius, "The Idle mind knows not what it wants."  Offering more after school programs for not only the elite but also those young people struggling in areas of academics could deter youth almost unknowingly to focus on their God given talents and assist with the enhancement of their education.

All communities need positive contributors as assets as they grow older in their communities.  Brittney has made it her mission to become more involved in getting youth programs for the San Bernardino County and Los Angeles County by becoming the young spokesperson for new business ventures such as the Aspiring Stars Resource Development Center.  ASRDC is a program designed to offer an incentive for youth with a low GPA by using the arts of music as its stimulus to motivate students to improve their academic skills.  Miss Teen Black L.A. Brittney Williams has also become inspired by the new not-for-profit establishment "The Physicians House," which is a subsidiary of Twelve Tribes Musical Empire owned by the well known recording artist "Makeda".
