The Outspoken Introvert
She might be shy and she might be quiet, but MHS sophomore Malerie Brooks is actually an outspoken `individual. “I’m not as shy as people think,” says Malerie Brooks as she talks about one of the biggest misconceptions people have about her. Brooks is currently involved in student council, newspaper staff and the girls’ powerlifting team. She also takes two honors classes. When asked what she wanted to do after completing high school, Brooks said she would travel the world. She would love for her first stop to Jamaica. She plans to go to Spelman College to major in sports medicine. As sophomore class president in the student council, Brooks has to be outspoken to get her points across. “She says things when they need to be said,” laughs Parisian Brown when she speaks of fellow newspaper staff Brooks. I think Malerie would help people in anyway she could because she is a very caring & sweet person . Anything you ask her to do she would do it in a heartbeat. Brooks has known for awhile that she is very shy. She has always wanted to get out of her shyness and meet new people. “I was definitely excited to be a part of newspaper staff. I think it will allow me to get out and meet people,” says Brooks. When friends were asked to describe her, they described Brooks as a quiet, loving person. Brooks’ friends believe that she always puts others before herself. “I think Malerie would help people in any way she could because she is a very caring and sweet person. Anything you ask her to do she would do it in a heartbeat,” says Parisian Brown. “She is a very caring caring and helpful person,” says her best friend Tiquisha Grace. Her favorite memory of them together is when they graduated 8th grade together. The two met when they were in the same science class in elementary school. Brooks’ favorite quote is Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him,    and He will make your paths straight.” Brooks believes that this quote makes her feel closer to God. Brooks is looking forward to meeting new people through newspaper staff and being able to get to out of her shell.
