Gabi Broekema is a visual journalist based in Bowling Green, Kentucky. After a busy year in 2022 consisting of a six-month 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 is back at her old Kentucky home finishing her Bachelor's Degree with Western Kentucky University's Photojournalism program. She plans to graduate in May 2023.
In her personal life, Broekema enjoys listening to audiobooks as she struggles to follow crochet patterns and long drives exploring the vast rolling backroads of Kentucky and Tennessee in her well-loved 2008 Toyota Prius.
