Brooklynn Sun Lorenzen '06
As an undergraduate from Corvallis, Oregon, Brooklynn distinguished herself as a point guard for the Lady Griz. She received her bachelor’s degree in Operational Communications in May 2004 and has returned to UM to enroll in the business school’s master’s program. She also will be a grad assistant for the Lady Griz coaching staff.
Why are you at UM? I chose to attend the U of M because not only do we have an accomplished and well-known women’s basketball program, but also because Missoula is beautiful and the people are great.
What surprised you most when you came to UM? There weren’t any cowboy types.
What’s the best advice you ever got? I can’t think of the best advice I’ve even gotten, but the best advice my husband ever got was “your wife is always right.”
When you were ten, what did you want to be when you grew up? The next Michael Jordan.
Do you have a favorite guilty pleasure? I like to eat a whole lot.
If your life was made into a movie, what genre would it be? Who would portray you? My life would be a comedy because of all the dumb things my friends and I do. Jennifer Lopez (J. Lo) would play me for sure and Brad Pitt would play my husband and I’m sure that Cher, Halle Berry, Brittney Spears, Shakira, and Shrek would be in there, too.
Sum up your life philosophy. Have fun, learn from people and experiences, and constantly try to improve yourself and that will lead to happiness and success.
