Brookie McIlvaine

Brookie McIlvaine just graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a major in Urban Studies and a minor in English. During her time at Penn she was most proud of planning sexual assault and diversity awareness workshops with her social club, writing her thesis about the potential safe injection site from the perspective of Kensington residents, and tutoring students at the detention center. She loves to eat, watch movies, read, and run (she ran two marathons to raise funds for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is excited to run her third).
