Brooklyn Garcia, 17. [open] FC: Shay Mitchell.
Brooklyn, or Brooke as she prefers, is a firecracker. She has so much energy and pep you’d be surprised if she wasn’t a cheerleader! She can get pretty hyper at times and she is close with her captain, Audrey. The two just clicked when Brooklyn arrived in White Chapel. She’s a strong girl, which is why she’s a base. She’s the sweetest girl you’ll ever meet, though she often makes perverted jokes. (‘That’s What She Said’ is her favorite.) She’s almost like a human garbage disposal — this girl loves to eat. Brooke fits in best with the guys and she is great friends with the Herrickson boys — you want to have some major fun? Meet up with them. Those three are the life of the party. She loves to dance which is why she is often the inspiration for some of the dance moves in the team’s routines. She loves cheerleading and doesn’t plan on ever stopping.
But you see, this happy attitude of her’s is a cover from her home life. Her father abuses her and her mother? Well, she walked out on the family when Brooke was young. She joined the cheerleading squad originally so she could stay away from home, but now she’s glad she made that decision: in more ways than one. The team has helped her deal with so much, but they still don’t know that her father continually abuses her. She wants to tell someone, she really does, but her father threatens her not to. It’s horrible. Her brother doesn’t have to deal with this and he won’t do anything to help her, which really hurts Brooke.
She isn’t a stand-out girl, her fashion sense remains with what makes her feel comfortable. Plus, she has to get what she can afford — she works at a Forever 21 at her home in White Chapel — so she can’t get anything too pricey. Brooke is determined to get a scholarship to an amazing school, so she has to work so hard to keep her grades up to be able to earn that Cheerleading Scholarship. The team helps her out money wise, but she hates feeling like their charity case.
