I’m Rebecca and am a current senior at Haverford College with a major in Growth & Structure of Cities (a mix of urbanism, geography, architecture, anthropology, and sociology based in the city) and a minor in Spanish. I just finished a semester abroad in Lima, Peru at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Perú (PUCP) and took courses in geography, architecture, and urbanism. Research interests include Asian/American communities and more generally the Asian diaspora, education, housing and gentrification, and accessibility to public services.
At Haverford, I work at the Admissions Office as a tour guide, host, multicultural recruitment intern (MCR), and member of the Student Admissions Advisory Council (SAAC), and will be starting as a Senior Interviewer this year. I am also one of the co-founders and former co-heads of the Pan-Asian Resource Center (PARC), and currently serve as Senior Adviser. In previous semesters, I’ve spent time working as a High School Writing Tutor and Coordinator for Mentoring And Student Teacher (MAST). This upcoming semester, I will be co-leading a student seminar for the Hurford Center for Arts & Humanities, Asian/America: A Search for Belonging. I have also been heavily involved in the Customs Orientation program as a Customs Person (2016-2017), Customs Person Committee Member (2017-2018), and Upperclass Advisor (2018-2019).
During my breaks, I have kept busy as a:
Summer 2018 Hanna Holborn Gray Fellow
Winter 2018 Former Content & Data Research Intern at the Center for Applied Community Engagement (CACE)
Summer 2017 Former Research Intern at Kurani Architecture
Summer 2016 Former Teaching Fellow for Breakthrough Summerbridge San Francisco
Just a bit of info so far…more to come soon!
