Her platform issue is “A World of Difference: Navigating the Cybersphere” where her aim is to teach generations (young and old) how to use the Internet safely and with integrity. She has utilized this platform to host seminars for parents and senior citizens in an attempt to bride the gap that has been created with the growth of technology. To teach children how best to utilize the Cybersphere, she uses the acronym S.P.A.C.E.
S – Select online friends carefully
P – Protect personal information
A – Act Wisely
C – Control privacy settings
E – Expose cyberbullying or abuse.
It is her hope that through her platform she can continue to be a positive influence in her community, across the state of New Jersey as well as nationally through the Miss America Organization.
Brenna’s future plans include obtaining a Masters Degree in Journalism and working in the field of television production.
