Brooke Blurton is well on her way to finding love on The Bachelorette Australia 2021.
But what can you find the 26-year-old doing when she’s not on extravagant dates with some of Australia’s hottest singles?
Hailing from Western Australia, Brooke has dedicated her career to being a youth worker, particularly supporting Indigenous youths who are suffering from homelessness or trauma.
“It starts with helping them gain strength and resilience in where they belong and where they fit into this world,” she said.
The ambition stems from her tumultuous childhood, in which at 11-years-old she lived through the suicide of her mother, sexual assault and prejudicial criticism due to not being “Aboriginal enough”.
“I was fairer than some of the Aboriginal kids and they would call me a ‘half-caste’,” Brooke, who was born to an Aboriginal-Malaysian mother and English father, said in a 2019 TEDx Talk.
Brooke Blurton’s Broadcasting Career
Having shared her love of AFWL and rugby, Brooke also scored herself a coveted broadcaster position in 2020.
In her role, the budding presenter found herself covering the Western Australian NRL for SBS’ National Indigenous Television.
“Ready to bring you all the @nrlwesternaustralia action on @nitv_au,” Brooke wrote on Instagram.
Unfortunately due to various statewide stay-at-home orders, the new role was put on pause.
‘It’s a bittersweet feeling knowing that I would have been starting my first ever broadcasting gig this year,’ she said at the time.
Fingers crossed our Bachelorette can get back to doing what she loves as soon as the world gets back to normal!
