Brittyne said the reason why she left her country was that she had always wanted to leave and teach abroad.

She said in the video:

"Living in America is so ghetto right now. Being a teacher in America, ghetto too. You know what they say, no reason to stay is a good reason to leave. I decided to move to Africa. It's crazy because ever since I can remember, I have been wanting to teach abroad in another country."

Information on her TikTok bio says she has a B.S. and also Ms Ed and that she is teaching English language in Nigeria.
