Meet The Director Of Miss Universe Ireland
Brittany Mason is an international model, actress, activist, and businesswoman. She has spent the last 15 years working with some of the worlds most recognized brands in the fashion and entertainment industries. You may have seen Brittany in an episode of Two and a Half Men, on a billboard in Time Square, or perhaps walking the runways at New York Fashion Week. Formerly represented by Wilhelmina, she has worked in Asia, Europe, as well as in North and South America with brands like John Frieda, Valentino, and Anna Sui. She has shot with world-renowned photographers such as John Russo and Patrick Demarchelier. In 2012, Supermodel Naomi Campbell described Brittany’s runway walk as a one of a “stallion.”
Brittany’s passion, dedication, and work ethic stem from her own experiences. A small-town girl from a population of 368 people, she had to learn how to overcome much adversity in the early years of her life. Brittany says modeling and pageants “saved her.” At age 17 her life changed completely in a matter of just four months. After winning the title of Teen Indiana, she then went on to win nationals, where she represented America as Miss (Teen) USA and placing 1st-Runner up in the worldwide competition Top Model of The World. A few years later she would win Miss Indiana USA placing 7th at the Miss USA competition. As a former titleholder for the Miss Universe Organization, Brittany was able to launch her career and learn the necessary tools to become successful personally and professionally.
She is a firm believer in giving back to the community. In 2008 she endorsed the DNC and went on tour with President Obama during the presidential election. With a passion for women’s rights, she took an active part in my different charities and The Model Alliance. Brittany launched a national campaign in the United States called I Am Possible (#IAMP) where she works with students to build confidence, combat bullying, overcome trauma, and encourages them to reach out for help by calling the Crisis Text line. #IAMP has also produced fundraisers such as fashion shows, concerts, and sells its line of MOXIE Merchandise to benefit the IAMP Hero Grant. The foundation awards a student that has overcome adversity and is taking action by making a positive difference in their community with the IAMP Hero Grant. #IAMP’s efforts have most recently been featured in celebrity photographer John Russo’s book “100 Making A Difference”, alongside Malala Yousafzai, George Clooney, and Serena Williams.
Her extensive work in the fashion Industry peaked her interest in design and production. Her Directorial debut was a Prostate Cancer Awareness video that she wrote and directed. The project earned 13 million views on Youtube in just one month. Brittany has also worked on large-scale events such as the Maxim Hot 100 party, the Superbowl, and with Will I. Am. to launch his smartwatch at Dreamforce. Her studies include International Business at Ball State University, Strasberg, Fashion Law Summer Intensive at Fordham Law School, Film Production at Pulse College, and Fashion Design at the Dublin Institute of Design, and most recently she has earned her Yoga teacher certification.
All of this created the perfect combination of unique experiences for her to step in as the new Director of Miss Universe Ireland. In May 2017, Brittany opened MOXIE Media Productions Limited and purchased the license to Miss Universe Ireland rebranding and launching the new organization. Her goal is to have Ireland host the international competition and to deliver the very first winning Miss Universe for the country. Her promise is to the women of Ireland, to help them become the best versions of themselves. The Miss Universe Ireland Organization’s goal is to cultivate job opportunities and to empower women to become leaders in the community to create positive social change.
