About Me


Passport Stamps & Social Encounters

My name is Rebeca. I prefer to spell my name with one 'c', but has been spelled with two c's since birth.
I'm pretty tall, but not uber tall. I'm 5'9, which is pretty tall for womyn I guess. Many people have encouraged me to model because of my height, but my hunger for food during 'wee' hours of the night strikes often. Moreover, I just can't meet the demands of conventional beauty.
Out of the many things I enjoy doing, I have to say strolling through parks on sunny days is an absolute favorite; sitting in the park is pretty awesome as well, and with a book in my hand I am complete.
Reading and writing are things I cannot do without. I enjoy a diverse selection of literature. Preferably, Afro-diasporan literature and philosophical texts. I am always accepting of what the world has to offer; so, with this being said, I can appreciate art, history, literature, or pretty much anything from around the globe!
Overall, I'm pretty chilled. I like to learn and adore language. I also love to sleep (the laziness in me).
I consider myself filled with a subtle curiosity. I'm always wondering and always questioning, but not in a creepy nosy way, more like a child who's aware of their limits. 'Question Mightily' is a motto I abide by and I'm often inclined to satisfy this curious appetite of mine. Conversation is something I value. A good discussion is always appreciated and when they contain laughter they're my favorite. I also prefer silence at times and appreciate people I can be silent with.


I like to dance Salsa. I'm from a part of NYC (el barrio) where most locals are of Puerto Rican ancestry, hence why knowing how to dance, among other things, remains imperative within our culture! One parent is actually from Puerto Rico. My mom was born and raised in Ponce, PR, and I grew up traveling back and forth from NYC to PuertoRico- for summers mostly. First generation-ers born in New York are called 'Nuyoricans'

My interests within my studies are political and social philosophy, epistemology, and action theory. I basically study why people do things-- individually and collectively.
I usually gravitate towards subfields not part of the traditional canon of philosophy and I am also fond of continental thought. Some stuff in political science and geography studies are pretty dope as well.
