Brooklyn’s Bio

Your major: Pre-Electrical Engineering

Your hometown: Sandy

Where do you live now? Draper

What are you passionate about? I am very passionate about playing the violin. I really like to play it and every song I listen to I want to see if I would be able to play it on the violin too.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? My favorite class at SLCC was Zumba! I took it last semester and it was really fun for me. I like to dance and zumba was the perfect way for me to get my exercise in while dancing to some fun songs.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? An actress that I would want to play me in a movie about my life would be Winona Ryder. People may know her from “Edward Scissorhands”. I was once told that she looks like me when my hair was dyed red so I figure she would be a good candidate to play me.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years I see myself finishing up my bachelors degree and moving onto my master’s. I hope to complete my master’s in Europe but I need to visit Europe first to see if I like the weather.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? If I could have any superpower it would be flying so that I could visit all the places around the world without having to go on an airplane. Though I still haven’t figured out how I would bring any luggage with me.

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: Something that other people would be surprised to know about me is that I love to sing. I like to sing along to Maroon 5 songs because they fit my vocal range. Though if anyone asks me to sing for them I will probably decline.

Brooklyn’s Favorites

Favorite musicians and/or artists: I have a wide range of music so I have favorite musicians for every genre but I usually like listening to rock. My favorite rock band is Linkin Park

Favorite TV shows and/or movies: My favorite TV show is Sherlock. Specifically I like BBC’s version of Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch as the main actor but the other one staring Robert Downey Jr. is also fun to watch.

Favorite sports or sports teams: I don’t usually watch sports daily but I like watching soccer. I always look forward to watching world cup.

Favorite food: My favorite food is Lasagna. I really like meat, pasta, and cheese and so lasagna is perfect for me.

What’s your favorite place to eat? My favorite place to eat is at the Olive Garden for two things specifically. The breadsticks and the lasagna. Olive Garden gives a large slice of lasagna that I can take home and eat for the next day.

What was your favorite cereal as a kid? My favorite cereal to eat was frosted flakes. I really liked the taste of them and they were really nice to eat as a dry snack as well.
