Golden Brooks is a highly versatile performer. Prior to acting, she was a classically trained dancer who studied and taught ballet, jazz, and modern dance, and was also a competitive figure skater who won several trophies when she was younger.
Unlike her character Maya on Girlfriends, Brooks has had the benefit of an extensive liberal arts education. She earned a Bachelor's degree in Sociology with a concentration on "Media Representation of Minorities" from UC-Berkeley, where she minored in Theater and then went on to earn a Master's degree from Sarah Lawrence College.
