Brooke (she/her), 17, has an open yet driven personality that comes through when you meet her. Now in her third year as a teen staff writer, Brooke writes authentically about topics that she’s passionate about, like LGBTQ+ issues and the value of comprehensive sex education. Brooke originally joined the teen staff because she was interested in journalism and noticed that there were very few outlets where teens could express themselves without feeling censored. She loves the inclusive community at Sex, Etc., where she gets to help teens around the country—and world—learn more about sexuality and sexual health. She dreams of going into law to work on immigration. A talented poet and avid debater, Brooke also enjoys fashion (but says she doesn’t know how to use a sewing machine). She loves listening to indie music and watching Grey’s Anatomy. Brooke is excited to be back at Sex, Etc. and Sex, Etc. is excited to have her back!
