Rebecca is majoring in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Global Education Studies. She is originally from Annandale, Virginia.
As a transfer student, it was hard to come to UVA not really knowing anyone and then being thrown into virtual classes made this even more difficult. Everyone in the Ed School is so welcoming and you will definitely find your place and your people here! I love that all the students at the Ed School have such similar passions, all really centering around helping others.
I am the social media director for HerCampus at UVA, a nationwide online magazine/media site by college students. I am also part of the UVA PINK Campus Team, and serve as the Vice President for the Student Virginia Education Association. Outside of school, I love pants, photography, painting, design, social media/marketing, cooking, and finding new restaurants to try.
After graduation, I hope to go to grad school and get my master's in a more niche aspect of education, and I also want to travel the world! My goal is to eventually teach young kiddos in some sort of educational setting, although I'm not sure what or where yet.
