Brooklyn is a senior at Normal Community High School. This is her first year as an Inkspot staff reporter. She is not involved in any extra-curricular activities, but enjoys painting and listening to and playing music in her free time. Most comfortable when I am jamming out in my car.

I'd really like to meet Brooklyn Beckham because I want to marry him so he can introduce us as Brooklyn and Brooklyn Beckham.
