One of the hardest things in life is finding your our own voice amidst all the noise. And we have to try on several different identities to see which one fits.
I’ve had more different styles than Madonna in the 90s, and my resume looks more like a random list of careers than someone’s work history.
But most recently I went from writing for a living and going to bed at 3 a.m., to talking for a living and waking up at 3 a.m. Change is the only thing that’s consistent in life, but it’s also consistently for the better. Through answered prayers and tweeking from management, my job and identity have changed, to sports anchor … Flash Girl
Let’s be real … I’m a tomboy. I missed The Bachelor to watch the Daytona 500, and I skipped Dancing with the Stars to watch the NCAA dance, even though I don’t even have a dog in the fight. Since I went to Virginia Tech, I should perhaps consider using an alternative cliche. So I traded microphones, and have a new home on the Mac Attack on WFNZ, and hope you come visit me there sometime.
So meet Flash Girl, my new identity … myself. The real Brittney Cason.
And for some sports comedy you can follow “Flash Girl” on Twitter
My first job in Charlotte was writing the nightlife column in Creative Loafing titled, “Brittney After Dark” – and now I’m “Flash Girl.” I hope people don’t think I’m a porn star or something!
