Success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life; it’s about what you inspire others to do. Being an inspiration to others plays a vital role in our world. It is rather tricky, but hard work is essential to achieve true success and accomplishments. Brittany O’Connor is no stranger to the idea of hard work, which has inspired so many people around her to achieve their goals.
Coming from a divorced family, Brittany never thought her family was broken. She became the elder sister to her half-siblings and a coach and mentor to hundreds of young dancers. Her parents taught her how to fight for her health, career, and life. Her father has quadriplegia and fights daily to live a normal life, while her mother is a Wall Street woman who has fought hard to break through the glass ceiling.
Growing up with such strong personalities empowered Brittany O’Connor to choose her career and become a ballerina even though she joined late. Today she is an expert ballet dancer, a philanthropist, a coach, and a mentor to young dancers worldwide.
Even though she joined ballet much later in life than the norm, she became proficient in it and received a contract from one of the largest companies in Europe, the Dresden SemperOper Ballet. She excelled and refined her talent with the company and learned a lot of trade secrets which she applied in her professional life to become the best ballet dancer.
Successfully transitioning to the commercial world and being casted and featured in various television shows like Glee, Glow, Another Period, Tango Mania, and The Morning Show was a great start.
