CES - Brysha '22

Brysha Schmidt’s CES connected her experiences in the Mills Athletic Center weight room with the pursuit of greater parity between girls and boys sports at Millbrook. Her dedication to strength training is evident in her outstanding performance as a tri-varsity athlete and in her coaching experience beyond Millbrook. Brysha’s success comes from hard work in the weight room, a space that she has, at times, found to be negative and unwelcoming, often due to boys’ attempts to dominate the space, thereby making it uncomfortable for girls and less-experienced athletes.
