Chatham-Kent’s Stephanie Brooks, Making CK Proud

Chatham-Kent sends athletes across Ontario, Canada, and the globe each year to compete athletically.

Sponsored by baCK to Chatham-Kent, we’ll be featuring local athletes who have left Chatham-Kent, and are proudly representing our community. We hope many of these athletic ambassadors for our community someday come baCK to call Chatham-Kent home.

This week, we feature Stephanie Brooks who competes in for Wilfrid Laurier University’s women’s soccer team.

Here are Stephanie’s responses to our baCK to Chatham-Kent athletes interview:

Can you describe what support you’ve felt from your hometown/ Chatham-Kent while you’ve been away?

I’ve always had a lot of support from my friends and family when it comes to soccer. Even old high school coaches have sent me messages of support. It has meant a lot to me to know that people in Chatham have my back despite the fact that I’m not there anymore.

What do you enjoy about coming home to visit?

I have spent the past couple off-seasons at Athlete’s Fuel. It’s nice to have a good environment to come back to and improve myself at.

What advice would you give to young athletes back home in Chatham-Kent?

You may not have access to the same resources and facilities that athletes from bigger cities have. But I’ve learnt that hard work and determination are more important than resources.
