After a busy year in 2022 consisting of a six-month photo and video internship with MLive: Kalamazoo Gazette Branch, a semester with the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Aarhus, Denmark, and freelance gigs here and there, Broekema finished her bachelor's degree with Western Kentucky University's Photojournalism program in May 2023. She is now expanding westward working as a photo intern with the Colorado Springs Gazette through the end of 2023.
