My Story



Sup, internet. My name is JoAnna Brooker–

I just graduated from the University of Tennessee as a Journalism/English major.

Right now, I’m an editorial intern with Sundress Academy for the Arts, and a waitress in downtown Knoxville. I also write and perform standup comedy and poetry.

In the voice of Enrique Iglesias, I can also be your copywriter/production assistant extraordinaire. Just check out all the cool things I did in college.

I have been CupofJoAnna since I was 17, and I can never stop being her or I’ll lose her to other JoAnna’s (you know who you are). So I am here in all my branded glory, to write content for YOU.

This blog consists of monthly musings, advice columns, videos, and snippets of whatever has caught my attention at the moment. And in 2019, so much more.
