After studying both Spanish and French, Brooke began learning Arabic through the STARTALK program. Given her love of language, Brooke was captivated by the history and unique quirks of Arabic. As a student at Maryland, she has combined Arabic with a major in Communications through which she studies what motivates people to communicate. Outside of school, Brooke serves as a Community Assistant for Resident Life and enjoys cooking and baking. In the future, Brooke hopes to put her Arabic skills to use working for the Federal Government.
