November Youth Highlight: Brooke

Sayre Savage No Comment

img951303Brooke is one of the many youth who engage with Youth MOVE Maine’s programs on a daily basis. Brooke is looking to go to college to be a Veterinary Technician.

1. Tell us a little about yourself…
Well I’m Brooke I’m 19 I work at Stillwater Health Care as a Dietary Aid. I graduated high school in June of 2015 at Old Town High School. I have two dogs and a cat. My hobbies are hanging out with friends and exercising, but cooking is my favorite. Last I want to go to college to be a vet tech.

2. When you think about Youth MOVE Maine, what is something that you really value or like about Youth MOVE Maine?
I like that they have peer support for teenagers. I think that’s the best thing someone could have done and they should have more around the state.

3. What is one major issue that is facing youth today? How can other youth and providers help fix this issue?
I would say homelessness and hunger. They can help fix this issue by having more programs like youth move, more homeless shelters for teens because Bangor only has one and it’s usually full so they have no where to go.

4. What inspires you to be the best you that you can be?
Seeing people that are struggling so that I can get to a place in my life where I can help them and make a difference.

5. What is your favorite part of fall and why?
Apple picking, corn mazes, all that type of fall stuff and thanksgiving is my favorite holiday hands down.
