Rebecca is a senior and has been involved with The Miami Student since her freshman year. She’s from the Bay Area in California, so she grew up just outside of San Francisco.
She has written for every section, but her favorites are food, style and, of course, opinion.
She is a member of Alpha Phi, a lover of long walks accompanied by a podcast, listening to music with her friends and writing.
You might run into her at the rec, where she works out to de-stress, or find her in Armstrong watching YouTube videos and eating her favorite sandwich from Toasted Bagel (and maybe sipping on a Bang … if she’s feeling desperate).
When she’s back home, she loves to go on hikes through the redwood trees, go to the beach and go out to eat at overpriced restaurants.
After graduation, she plans to continue pursuing writing.
I was playing the comparison game with people I had never met before, and with the curated highlight reels they were posting. And I didn’t even catch on until a few days after I deleted the apps. I only noticed the voice when it stopped.
I’m looking for the essence within the word ritual itself, and how I – a non-religious, 21-year-old college student – can find the deeper meaning in my life where I feel it fits.
But it meant everything to him, which is why it meant something to me.
I’m from California. I like avocado toast and anything dairy free, and I watch my added sugars. My boyfriend is from Connecticut, so burgers, mozzarella sticks, breakfast sandwiches and blue Gatorade are all up his alley. We have a hard time eating food together.
