Brittany lives in a small town in Ontario, Canada. Growing up in a mixed family with a Laotian father, she has always had a desire to connect with her cultural roots. She had her first visit to Laos in January 2017 when she was 26 years old and immediately felt a connection with the people and environment. One evening at a night market in Luang Prabang, she met a child selling handicrafts made from war shrapnel. This single encounter with a child the same age as her own son, sparked and inspired the idea behind A MILLION ELEPHANTS.
