About Brooklynn Bennett,

Brooke, as the oldest in her family, tries to help out as much as she can around the house with her mom and her sibling’s schoolwork.  Her mother says she’s very hardworking, loving, and smart.  We asked her what a normal day in life consists of for her and she said “I normally wake up around 7:30-7:45 to get ready for school and get my siblings up.  After that, I will do any homework I may have before class starts and then start class.  Throughout the day, I will help my siblings with any schoolwork or homework they need.  After school, I will either go to work or pom depending on the day.  When I arrive home, I also do any homework that needs to be finalized”. As you can see her day is very busy and eventful and she likes being kept busy all the time because she doesn’t like having anything to do.  We also asked her what Pompon means to her and here is her response.  “ Pom is more than a sport to me.  It created a family of people that I will always remember and created bonds that cannot be forgotten, and a coach that has changed my entire life since I started”. Brooke is fully committed to Pompon and wants to continue doing it in college.  The last question we asked Brooke was who is her biggest inspiration.  She said “ my mom is my biggest inspiration.  She is a single mother and has been for more than half of my life and she is so hardworking and determined to give us a life that she couldn’t have as a child.  She’s always doing the most for me and my siblings and has been the best mother I could’ve ever asked for”. Brooke is all about her family, work, and of course, her boyfriend who she tries to make as much time for in her busy life.
