Q&A with Rebeckah:
What’s the best part of your story so far?
College has absolutely been the best part of my story. I started out in Iowa for 2 years, and transferred down to MidAmerica Nazarene University for my last two years. I played volleyball in college all 4 years which lead me some of the greatest memories and friendships while traveling around the nation getting to do my favorite thing! I also loved the program I studied which made it very easy to want to learn.
What organization or company inspires you and why?
I really admire the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. They truly change lives by believing every young person has the ability to succeed and thrive in life. They partner youth with adults who provide accountability, education, and encouragement through long-lasting relationships. I love how it draws people of all kinds in to nurture and strengthen our community.
What is something no one would ever believe to be true about you?
People are usually shocked when they make a movie reference and I don’t get it. I rarely watch movies. I find them quite boring and I get distracted or fall asleep by the time the opening credits are finished.
What are you passionate about related to the work you do in serving others?
Simply being in this environment where you get to see the fruit of your labor is so encouraging. I admire the therapists’ diligence in helping patients make strides they never thought possible, the patients who work hard each day and overcome obstacles, and the people behind the scenes working to make healthcare affordable. I love being united for a common goal with a team of people who fight for you.
What are you doing when you feel most like you?
Anything active! I feel most alive when I am outdoors, working out, and playing or watching almost any sport. In addition, playing with my 11 nieces and nephews is pretty much the best thing in the world.
In an alternative life, what would you want to give a try?
I wish I was able to sing better. I grew up with a music background but never took voice lessons, and I admire people who can!
