Rebecca earned a BA in History and Political Science from Simmons University, where her internship experiences drew her to uplifting noncitizen communities. Her passion grew throughout her legal education at Northeastern University School of Law. There, she co-opped with Justice Bridge Legal Center, Greater Boston Legal Service’s Immigration Unit, and the Rian Immigrant Center, while serving as a Student Attorney for the Immigrant Justice and Domestic Violence Clinics. These experiences have informed her trauma-informed and culturally-sensitive representation approach, which she looks forward to applying when she works with unaccompanied children as an IJC Fellow at the Safe Passage Project.
