My name is Rebeca. I prefer spelling my name with one 'c', but it 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 try encouraging 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 two things I simply can't 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, food from all around the globe!
Overall, I'm pretty chill. I like to learn and adore language. I also love to sleep (the laziness in me).
I consider myself to have constant but subtle curiosity. I'm always wondering and always questioning. But not in a creepy or 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. I always appreciate a good discussion 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 going out to dance Salsa. I'm from a part of NYC called East Harlem, which is also commonly referred to as 'El Barrio' Most locals from this area are of Puerto Rican heritage, hence why to know how to dance Salsa, among other things, remains imperative to the culture of the community! My mom was born and raised in Ponce, PR, and I grew up traveling back and forth from NYC to PuertoRico most of my summers. First generation-ers born in New York City 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.
