About Me

Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am a 23 year old living in Vaughan, Ontario.

Currently, I am a 2L student at Osgoode Hall Law School. I recently graduated with an Honours B.A. in Law and Society from York University in June 2017. In the future, I would love to practice Law in the area of Labour and Employment.

Aside from academics, I am an avid political activist. I have been on various campaign teams since I was 15. I love getting involved and becoming informed about my community. Other hobbies I have include watching Netflix, exercising, and reading.

Feel free to ask me any questions!

Describe one transformative experience that you have had.

In April 2017, I was chosen to represent my federal political riding of King-Vaughan in the Daughters of the Vote initiative headed by Equal Voice National. As part of this program, I had the honour of joining 336 other women in the House of Commons on International Women's Day. We were the first group of all women to sit in the House. This was a transformative experience because I was able to demonstrate my passion for women's representation in Canada's capital and actively see our work in action.

Who inspires you? What advice or insight did he or she provide you with?

My mom and dad are the most inspirational beings in my life. They are the strongest people I know and always stand up for what they believe in. They have taught me to never give up on my goals, no matter how hard they may be to reach. They also taught me to be realistic and honest with myself.

What are somethings you would really like to share with others?

A secret about me: I love to cook. If I wasn't in law school, I probably would try out a year in culinary school to see what becomes of my culinary skills. I have always cooked dinner for my family and can easily learn a recipe from watching an episode of any show on the Food Network. Maybe in the future I will take a summer cooking class, who knows!
