Class of 2020 | Currier House
Rebecca is a sophomore in Currier studying Computer Science and Linguistics with a secondary in Neurobiology, and is especially excited about intersections between brains, technology, and language [if any or all of these even vaguely interest you, please talk to her!]. She’s always admired martial arts and was initially pulled in because the previous demo chair convinced her to do kpop-inspired Taekwondo (BTS, specifically), and since, she’s fallen for the spirit of the team and personal improvement — Taekwondo has brought her friends she loves, much more flexibility, confidence, strength, and lots more (looking forward to what else it’ll bring)~ When she isn’t doing Taekwondo or trying to study or do work, she’s either taking walks (and thinking), singing (in a group, or to herself), dancing (KPOP!), eating (anything), cleaning her room (aka procrastinating), or reading (<3).
