Brooke Murray: Dancing her way to the top

Brooke Murray is warm, effervescent and genuine in person... everything you'd expect from a cheerleader.

What you might not expect is that someone whose job is to literally cheer people on could have fought such a tough battle against mental illness at such a young age (at the time of our interview, she was only nineteen).

Brooke's recovery is proof positive that people can overcome any challenge, however it also shows that first appearances can be deceiving.

I caught up with the dancing, cheerleading, pageant-competing and self-confessed chocoholic at Sydney Olympic Park for this entertaining interview.
