She is also an advocate of wildlife conservation and environmental protection.
Prior to her big win, Brittany was diagnosed with brain cancer and has to undergo a 12-month chemotherapy while competing in Miss Earth Australia 2017 where she was adjudged first runner-up and Miss Earth Australia Air 2017.
During her talent presentation on the pageant, she courageously removed her wig and shares her story to inspire a lot of people across the world on being grateful for what they have and not giving up on oneself no matter how bad the situation looks.
“I just want to drive my story harder that I was an earth warrior before cancer, during cancer and I will be always after cancer. It’s something I’m proud of. Something insignificant as hair doesn’t matter. My message is what matters, it’s about a much bigger picture that people can still achieve amazing things. If we can put that energy into saving the environment, the world will be a better place. I’m really grateful for this experience,” she said.
Currently, Brittany was named as the Ambassador for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and is actively involved in fundraising for further disease awareness, research, and advocacy efforts.

As shared on social media account, "I don’t want the crown for the glory, I want the crown to raise my voice to reach as many people as possible in the pursuit of a greener Earth.”
Brittany Dickson strongly believes that beauty pageants are not only about physical beauty, but it is much more than that like opinions, advocacies, a step towards change, and noble meanings. She is not only considered as a 'brave warrior' who won a battle against brain cancer but works as a goodwill ambassador to raise public awareness about the disease. She is considered as one of the strongest contenders for the title of Miss Earth 2020 but also a powerful woman who makes her dream happen.

This years one of a kind virtual pageant came to an end yesterday. When the world stood still, my earth sisters and I didn’t. We all contributed to our local communities in different ways and raised global awareness about important environmental issues.
I was a little heartbroken I didn’t make the top 20 out of 84 incredible women from around the globe - my team and I worked so hard and gave everything we had. However, we respect the judges decision and I can confidently say that my dedication to the cause does not end here, the essence of Miss Earth will forever be in my heart.
I am so humbled that I was recognised by Carousel and Jewel Beauty Strong for my commitment to the environment and was awarded the title of Miss Earth 2020 Eco Angel. This means more to me than having an amazing pasarela walk or the flashiest production. I intend to take full advantage of this incredible opportunity to really inspire others, make a difference, follow in the footsteps of environmental greats and leave my mark on the earth
Now I send my love, best wishes and heartfelt congratulations to all of this years delegates, especially our new queen and her elemental court;

Research! The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service contributes to a significant amount of wildlife monitoring and research across the state.
Wildcount is a perfect example of one of their programs - with the help of volunteers, motion sensitive-cameras (as you can see here) are deployed at hundreds of sites to non-invasively get an idea of which species may be in decline and their distribution so we can best come up with management plans and prioritize areas for action.
The program has taken over one million animal photos since it started - I've included some of my favorites from past years!
