5 Things About Me: Brook Handler

  1. I was born in Rochester, New York and coincidentally moved to Rochester, Michigan when I was 5.
  2. My favorite weekend every summer is Great Lakes Relay, a 3 day, 10 person, 300 mile relay I’ve participated in since 2008.
  3. Because of having the relay, high school and college camp in Northern Michigan, I asked my friend as we drove to Lake Tahoe this summer “but is it as beautiful as Up North??” (Ha, little did I know…)
  4. I love under-cooked baked goods and making multiple layer birthday cakes for my friends.
  5. I’ve wanted to go to Machu Pichu since I was 9, then because I wanted to see the llamas.

North Carolina connection?
My only connection to North Carolina is that my best friend lived in Raleigh the past year and I hope to meet some of his friends!
