ABOUT ME

"No Matter the island, forever an island girl"
My name is Rebeca, one c by preference, two c's since birth. I'm 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 cannot say no to a meal!
Out of the many things I enjoy doing, I have to say strolling through parks on summer 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 is something I cannot live without. I enjoy a diverse selection of literature. Preferably, authors who write in respects to the African diaspora, however, I am always accepting of what the world has to offer, so- with that being said- I can appreciate art, history, literature, or pretty much anything from around the globe!
Overall, I'm pretty chilled. I love learning 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 acceptable and when they contain laughter they're my favorite. I also prefer silence at times and appreciate people I can be silent with.

Interests

My interests include engaging in the political struggle for equal rights. Whether it be through art, conversation, social action, or academia. Justice and Equality are two ideas that mean more to me than most things.

I also love to dance Salsa. I'm from a part of nyc, where the majority of locals are Puerto Rican descendants, hence why knowing how to salsa, among other things, is imperative within the culture! My parents are actually from Puerto Rico. My dad is from Santurce and my mom from Ponce, first generation-ers are called 'Nuyoricans'
