Rebecca just graduated from University and will support our team until December!
Besides being part of our EHD team she will also be teaching an English class twice a week.
And this is what Rebecca has to say about herself:
Hello! I am a recent graduate of Oberlin College, a small university in northern Ohio, near Cleveland. At Oberlin I studied Biology, thinking I would go to medical school after I graduated. After a year at Oberlin though, I realized my real passion was for teaching. I then shifted my focus, taking several courses on education and spending 2-3 afternoons per week tutoring young people at a local after-school center and teaching a music class at that same center. So while I am still very much interested in medicine and health, I plan to concentrate on education for the time being. I studied at the University of Cape Town for one semester last year and made some wonderful connections, so when I got the opportunity to come back to Cape Town to volunteer at the Scalabrini Centre, I eagerly took it. In my free time, I enjoy singing and playing the guitar, writing, dancing, and generally doing things that scare me.
