Rebecca is a graduate student studying journalism at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
Rebecca double-majored in English and Psychology at Guilford and hopes to become an international crisis reporter focused on women and children. While at the College, she worked at the school’s newspaper, The Guilfordian, in a variety of roles, but counts her experiences as editor-in-chief to be the most influential on her decision to pursue a M.S. degree in journalism.
“I understand I have the privilege of a voice that people will listen to and I want to use my voice to help others speak,” she says. “I want to report on breaking news, but also look at institutional and systemic crises around the globe such as reproductive rights or water and sanitation issues.”
Rebecca is thankful for the education and experiences she had at the College and believes Guilford prepared her to take the next step in her future career. “I knew I had the skills to do well at USC because Guilford made me work hard,” she says. “I was pushed out of my comfort zone, I expanded my boundaries, I failed and I learned. Guilford gave me all those opportunities in a safe space.”
