Sophomore Holds Title of Miss Black Teen International Ambassador
Sophomore Brookie Chaney holds the title of Miss Black Teen International Ambassador. She has used the title to amplify her platform of advocating and bringing awareness to black maternal mortality. She founded the LISTEN (Leading Initiatives to Save the Existence of Black Women Now) organization, which is aimed at teaching teens self-advocacy tips on how they can support women who face disparities in medical care. Her advocacy work includes providing “You Matter” gift baskets to mothers who have experienced difficulties or loss.
An honor student at Woodward, Brookie plays cello in the WA Honors Philharmonia Orchestra and loves learning piano. She is a dancer and has tap danced with the Price Performing Arts Center for more than 10 years. In addition, she’s a member of the Track & Field and Girls Golf teams as well as the French Club and Black Student Union. Outside of school, she is a member of Jack and Jill of America and volunteers as a teaching assistant focusing on literacy and reading for underserved communities. After Woodward, she plans to pursue studies in medicine.
