Savannah Britt is a millennial PR powerhouse and influencer within the fashion and music community. She has developed a strong reputation as a PR guru and creative consultant who has shaped the identity of many big artists and brands. She recently moved to Lagos, Nigeria to bring her expertise to Nollywood.
We caught up with her to talk about lockdown, mental health, and what to expect from her for 2020.
How have you found the lockdown? And what have you learned about yourself from this surreal experience?
I’ve been able to find the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s a difficult time for society, however it feels good to just pause for a moment. My job is very demanding so I never get to stand still on a regular basis. I’ve really been at such peace with myself. I’ve learned that there are aspects of this new lifestyle that I must integrate into my life once lockdown is over. I enjoy my personal space a lot!
Has being in quarantine affected your mental health in any way?
Overall my mental health has been positive. I’ve been writing down my goals, going for jogs, watching new TV shows, and reading books. This quarantine has shown me that these are all important for my self-care.
When you get a moment to PAUSE, what do you do for fun?
I love going on hikes, going to art galleries, trying new restaurants, and traveling.
If you could be anywhere on earth, where would you be and why?
Accra, Ghana. I’m at such peace when I’m there. The food, the people, the culture—everything is easygoing.
If your style was a song, what would it be?
Share a beauty tip with us…
Rose water is my holy grail. It’s a great moisturizer and toner in one.
Describe a time where you took your fashion sense too far, or had a style mishap.
I wore this jumpsuit once that had cut-outs. No matter how much double sided tape I used, I kept having nip slips throughout the night. #FreeTheNip
Tell us one thing from your bucket list.
I’d like to run a marathon one day. I was a sprinter in my adolescence but never tried long distance because I didn’t have endurance. A marathon seems like more of a mental task than a physical one—a “mind over matter” sort of thing. I’d like to give it a try.
One thing you couldn’t live without?
Tell us something your followers don’t know about you.
One summer in high school, I studied abroad in Johannesburg, South Africa at the University of Witwatersrand. The all girls program was comprised of a diverse group of American girls, students of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy, and several other girls from local Johannesburg schools.
What can we expect from you for 2020?
I’m really focused on connecting the African diaspora globally. The Brittprint Agency will be doing this through sparking strategic activations and collaborations all the way from Kingston Jamaica to Lagos Nigeria. I’m exploring acting as well. My Nollywood debut is coming soon, as I’ll be making an appearance of the upcoming season of The Men’s Club.
