Macaila Britton
A Chicago gal writing about all things social justice and lifestyle.

what to expect is a digital platform discussing all things social justice and lifestyle. Macaila created this space as a creative outlet for her writing and passion for advocacy. As she evolved, so did the blog. What was once a digital beauty guide, is now a platform championing human rights and equality while starting conversations about the workplace, fitness, fashion, culture, and more. Macaila prioritizes staying true to vulnerability and authentic writing and uses those principals as a foundation for what is published.

What separates Macaila from other bloggers is her passion for change. She is a dreamer and a change maker fueled by empathy and justice. Since she was a little girl she loved writing- thinking of short stories and jotting them down. She wouldn’t leave the house without a notebook and pencil- heck, she still doesn’t! In 2014 she decided to start this blog as a place to write and interact with others. My goodness has this blogged transformed over the last 5 and a half years. Macaila has always had a passion for helping others. Growing up there was prioritization for serving the community. In 2016 she joined an organization set out to eradicate world hunger. As a member of the leadership team she was in charge of building a team of “doers”.

Longing to do more and still feeling helpless, Macaila decided effective January 1, 2017, would drastically shift gears- publishing articles built on awareness and action for global issues and the injustice people are facing. Macaila believes together we can change the world. There is never an age requirement, education level, occupation, gender, race, social status, or anything else that can limit us from achieving greatness and making our world a more safe and happier place to live. Change might not happen right away- or even with the first try, but we can change the world. Join Macaila as she sets out to make a difference in our world as she explores the ins- and outs of the beautiful Windy City and the destinations she has yet to travel to!
