2018 OSI Community Fellow Brittany Young was recently featured in a Toyota “#makeup2mud” video talking about her project, B-360, an organization that uses dirt bike culture as a way to introduce young people to educational and career opportunities in STEM fields. Young, who is a chemical engineer, wants to use the program to give young people, especially girls, a different idea of what an engineer can look like. She also wants to change the perception of dirt bike riding, which is illegal in Baltimore.

The #makeup2mud campaign focuses on spotlighting the ways women are impacting the world of motocross both on and off the bike.
