Doyon Foundation Student Profile: Brittni Guyton
One day, you may see Doyon Foundation student Brittni Guyton on the silver screen. The communications major at Long Beach State University has already gotten her feet wet, with modeling gigs, appearances in commercials and music videos, and even an internship on the TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. After graduating in 2010, Guyton hopes to continue building a successful career in the entertainment industry.
“It seems like an exciting field,” the Torrance, Calif. native said. “To be successful in my chosen career is going to require a lot of hard work, good relationships, commitment and God’s blessings.”
Guyton has proven she is used to hard work. She graduated from high school at 16 and began taking college courses at an early age.
“This was challenging for me,” she said. “I overcame this by getting more focused on what my goals were and pursuing them.”
Guyton, who recently received a basic scholarship, said the Foundation is now helping her pursue her goals.
“I recently asked Doyon for support, as I am now on my own and my financial resources are more difficult,” she said. “Doyon Foundation’s assistance would be a great asset in helping me to fulfill my goals and finish my education.”
In addition to her education and entertainment industry work, Guyton also enjoys wakeboarding, snowboarding, going to the beach, riding quads, hunting with her father and brother, traveling and any type of outdoor activity. She is the daughter of Rod and Trinette Guyton, and the granddaughter of John and Mona Guyton, and Bob and Elaine Waters.
